Go Lions!

Funny that they should have an exhibition game in Japan - not exactly football powerhouses.


Well I think that's the point when you are playing teams that would have touble with American high school teams due to lack of size, speed, strength, etc...I imagine Norte Dame's JV squad would end up paralyzing a few bodies. And as I said there were only 3-5 members, of former students on each squad-so sort of false advertising.


I wouldn't under-estimate the Japanese in contact sports. What they lack in size they at least partially make up for in fearless tackling and whippet like speed. Japan plays Rugby Union, and although they are amongst the lesser known teams (there's only about 10 or 11 top level teams in the world) they nevertheless currently ranked 16th out of 90+ teams.
