Have you been following the World Rugby Cup? It is being held here in Japan. So, in this case, we say that the Japan team is the "Home Favorite". That means that most everyone here is rooting (cheering) for them. They are in Pool A along with Ireland Scotland Samoa and Russia. I only saw parts of the the first game that they played. I was at home. It was against Russia. Russia scored first by a mistake from the Japanese team. But then Japan won easily. The final score was 30 to 10. The next game was against Ireland. I saw some at home but then I went to the gym. I didn't expect Japan to win. The gm has a big screen TV. They always show sports events. So many of us watched as we were wrong out (exercising). It was fantastic! The Irish team had built as 12 to 3 lead. But then the Japanese team got tough. The Irish could score no more. Japan made two more tries. The final score was 19 to 12. Many of us watched the final minutes together. There were lots of smiling faces and cheering when the game was over.
