Japan head coach Jamie Joseph pays respects to Tyhoon Hagibis victims


Jamie Joseph paid his respects after Japans tenacious victory over Scotland to sufferers of Tyhoon Hagibis.
Josephs side have made it to some quarter-finals of a Rugby World Cup after a victory in Yokohama for the first time in their history.
Following the historic victory, Joseph was exceptionally keen to pay his respects prior to reevaluate any of the played to those who lost their lives with.
I think that you could just look around and find out how this is a special a second for our team and for this country, stated the head trainer.
Before I talk about the footy, I truly want to acknowledge the families that have lost people in the typhoon today.
That really motivated our staff. We spoke about it this morning. Since whilst celebrating tonight there are a whole lot of people who are 19, the players really wanted to play. I just would love to admit that.
Typhoon Hagibis made landfall south of Tokyo on Saturday and battered northern and central Japan using torrents of rain and gusts of breeze.
Sometimes those kinds of things could be overwhelming but I think that [playing for them] came out at the match today, particularly when sometimes it had been really, really rough, Joseph inserted in his post-match media conference.
I believed that the Scottish team were incredible in all areas of the game, they took us right from the beginning, he further added.
Japan went knowing they had to win by eight points to make the. The home side struck back with four unanswered attempts to lead after conceding the first things of the Test.
They scored [ancient ] and at certain areas of the game they out-played and out-matched us, but its the tenacity of our staff at crucial areas of the Evaluation that paid dividends for us.
Then we were just ready to hang on till the end and I think that many of this has been to do with what is happening inside our own camp and also the fact that were playing a house World Cup.
We all see, and feel, the amount of support that is behind our group and thats incredibly motivational.
Japan will face-off against South Africa at the quarter-finals, a fixture that steeped in Rugby World Cup history at 2015 because of the Brave Blossoms victory over the Springboks.
Well start next week and well go from there. The trick to our victories is our preparation, being coordinated from the start of the week and with consistent messages, said captain Michael Leitch.
So, well do that and were coming out weekly to really have a good match and shed. Were coming to win.
