Makes sense, the Rebels will offer a much firmer test than the pitiful Stormers.

They've been boned like your Chiefs last week:

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/2018/05/23/rugby/sunwolves-unveil-team-match-rebels/#.WwXgdSBx3IU

With regular head coach Jamie Joseph and a number of established Brave Blossoms back in Japan preparing for tests against Italy and Georgia in June, the Sunwolves starting XV shows 11 changes and three positional switches from the side that beat the Stormers in Hong Kong last weekend.

“Obviously we have lost a few of the Japan players and we have a couple of injuries as well,” Brown said of the 23-man squad.


They're boned for next week's game against the Brumbies as well.

Sunwolves seem to have a massive squad. 49 players listed on their wiki page, that's huge, especially for Super Rugby

They make loads of changes every week

Entertaining match. Hodge going well @10. Shit opposition though.

Mafi gives away the dumbest penalties...

3 in this half alone. EDIT: Might actually be 4. :uhoh:

Fun to watch, tho.

Cottrell very quiet. Let’s have a look at Timani.

Maddocks got real gas.

Mafi is such a hungus.

Going blind from that scrum... :lol:

Rebels score anyway - with the overlap - b/c the Sunwolves are a back down, Mafi!

Hodge was solid - but a bit flat-footed at times.

Will be interesting to see how he goes against my stinkin' Blues...
