The Sunwolves failed to make it two Super Rugby wins on the trot when they went down to the Western Force. But the atmosphere at Prince Chichibu Memorial Rugby Ground was once again superb.
Japanese rugby fans have one last chance to see their heroes in action – on July 2 when they play the Waratahs.
But before that, the Brave Blossoms are in action – with games against Hong Kong on May 28 at Chichibunomiya and against Scotland on June 18 at Toyota Stadium and June 25 at Ajinomoto Stadium.
