A little groggy after wine and menu tasting last night. Luckily we left Tokyo for Osaka by bullet train – the smoothest of train rides almost as smooth as Ade Adebayo on a night out in London back in the day!
Just seen the England XV announced for the game against USA on Thursday. There is plenty of gas here and a team well capable of getting a result against the USA at Kobe. An exciting back line – hope they get plenty of ball, if so, they should do some serious damage! Cant wait to see them in action!
