All Blacks Vs Japan

Right: Friendly Japanese fans, Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium, Tokyo.

The All Blacks Vs Japan match was preparation for the All Blacks end of year tour to the northern hemisphere following the Rugby Championship which they had won with an unbeaten record. The Japanese were never really expected to test the World Champion All Blacks but they did play with heart and earned the respect of the crowd.
