In a captivating rugby union clash, BBC-exclusive action unfolds on Saturday, June 22, as Japan welcomes England to Tokyo. The Brave Blossoms will attempt to add another historic victory to their resume, having already conquered Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, but never their formidable foes, England.

The two nations have met four times, with England emerging victorious on each occasion. Their first encounter took place at the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, and it would be another 31 years before they faced off again, with England securing a 35-15 win at Twickenham in 2018. The following year, England triumphed 52-13 on home soil, and most recently, they prevailed 34-12 at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in Nice.

However, Japan has consistently proved to be a formidable opponent, as witnessed at the 2015 World Cup when they stunned the rugby world by defeating the mighty Springboks. Defying odds as high as 100/1, the Brave Blossoms delivered a remarkable 34-32 victory, a result that sent shockwaves through the sport.

“With the rugby union world keenly awaiting this showdown, the stage is set for another captivating clash between two nations with contrasting histories.”
