It's been fantastic.

Possibly Scotland's worst performing tournament, but an absolute joy.

Only issue was the very late/or early KO times ; but what a tournament and hopefully it goes back to Japan at some point.

Plenty of excitement, joy, heartache, playing games a few hours after a supertyphoon, the hosts with two stunning wins and topping their group, the closest 3 point semi between the best of the two hemispheres, Uruguay thwarting Fiji, brilliant haka reactions, a final manshaming, Patchell finally getting a chance, undercurry playing a blinder to destroy NZ, and the boks, probably the most gracious of all winners taking the spoils. Good comp.

Congratulations Japan......that was a first rate Tournament you hosted. Excellent venues, crowds, modern facilities, transport systems, food to die for, and exciting games and results. Congratulations also on the continuing development of your rugby team......we hope to see you soon in the Rugby Championship to have regular international games.

Saw 9 matches and spent two and half weeks over...really great great time.

The Japan fans could not have been better. Knowledgeable and true rugby spirit.

Plus throw in the food, trains, sites to see, etc....could not have done more

Despite my essentially futile trip, it was magnificent over there.

The early ko times have been a pain, but no different from nz/aus really.

Excellent tourney, enjoyed it despite the final

Thought it was brilliant, and all my mates that went over said it was very well organised and great fun. Definitely one to remember.
