Round 2 of the 2015 Tokyo Cup was played at Kasai Rinkai Koen Sports Ground and saw the Tokyo Gaijin RFC take on All Jin Jan RFC.(AJJ). AJJ had beaten Donkeys RFC by an even larger score than the Gaijin had beaten them last round and had also put up a strong battle in their last encounter in the Shuto League in 2014. It was a hot day for May but beautiful conditions for watching rugby.

A rugby game in the middle of Golden Week is generally not a good idea as many people take the 5 day holiday to get out of Tokyo and do a spot of travelling.. The Tokyo Gaijin RFC struggled to get a team together in the lead-up to the game but it would be STRUG RFC (an acronym for STreet RUGby) who would struggle on the day as the Gaijin put up a cricket score against them.

The Tokyo Gaijin RFC turned up at Kasai Rinkai Koen Rugby Field for their first round clash with Donkeys RFC hoping to start the Tokyo Cup better than they did last year. A full squad, a large group of helpers and fans, and everyone almost on time meant the team got off to a positive start. At 1pm Donkeys RFC kicked off and it was 'game on'.

The Tokyo Gaijin RFC arranged a "Friendly" game against Chiba Barbarians RFC as a warm-up for the upcoming Tokyo Cup. The Chiba Barbarians are the best amatuer side in Chiba prefecture so the match was considered an ideal warm-up. Unfortunately the Gaijin could only muster 15 players but they were able to put together a decent team even though some players were out of position.

The Champion's League, also known as the Cup Winners Cup, is a competition between the winners of all the amateur Leagues in Tokyo. The Tokyo Gaijin RFC had done marvelously well to make it to the Champion's League Final beating Mandara RFC along the way. They were up against Blackeyes RFC in the final in what was to be a tough and uncompromising game to decide the best amateur team in Tokyo.

The Tokyo Gaijin RFC has been attending the Manila 10's for 10 years now and it is a much anticipated event on the Tokyo Gaijin calendar. Preparations start many months in advance and Tomohiro Setoguchi must be heartily thnaked for all the hard work that he put into the event. There were the usual pull outs in the weeks before-hand, frustrating his efforts, but 6 players from outside Tokyo helped the team put together a healthy squad of 15 players.

The Tokyo Gaijin RFC were schooled by a much superior Supermen RFC in a 'friendly' match out at Inagi Sports Ground. The Gaijin were missing regular Captain Apisai Bati, vice captain Eamonn Murphy and a host of other players as they took an opportunity to get game time for new players and 'green' players against a full strength Supermen RFC. It was always going to be tough for the Gaijin with such a 'nuts and bolts' team against one of Tokyo's top amateur teams. Supermen had been knocked out of the Champions League by Mandara, who the Gaijin beat last week, so they were keen to get back some lost pride and came out very strongly.

With all guns firing! That's how the Tokyo Gaijin RFC knew Mandara (not Mandela but said the same way) would come out in their first Champion's Cup game (aka. Cup Winners Cup). And that's exactly what they did. The Gaijin, putting in a great defensive effort and riding on the individual brilliance of 18 year old Apisai Bati Junior, got home to take the match 19 v 10.
