Japan Coach John Kirwan named a 62-man squad Monday ahead of this summer’s test matches, which start for Japan on May 1st in Daegu against South Korea in the HSBC Asian 5 Nations. Following games against Arabian Gulf, Kazakhstan and Hong Kong in Tokyo, Japan then hopes to play a game against a South Africa President’s XV before travelling south for the IRB Pacific Nations Cup.
But for now, Kirwan is focused on nothing but the Asian 5 Nations and Rugby World Cup 2011 qualification.
