Rugby in Japan 22

In Japan, the influence of COVID-19 becomes to die down but the tests against Wales and England were cancelled. Maybe they will be played next autumn but there is a possibility of playing without spectators. The seasons of professional baseball and J.League will start next month but the games or matches will be played without an audience.

Some Top League players and coaches leave their teams. Both former All Black Dan Carter and former Wallaby Matt Giteau will leave Japan as their contract terminated. On the other hand, former Springbok Johan Ackermann will coach NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes next season. And Hitoshi Ōno, former Japanese international who played in three World Cups announced his retirement. It becomes news and marks the end of an era.

Super Rugby is also suspended but in New Zealand, the league matches played by domestic teams only will start again. And Japan's Sun Wolves that are scheduled to be dissolved in late May now have a possibility of playing against Australian teams in July.
