first_imgMonday Jun 10, 2013 Second string Wales beat Japan in scorching heat of Osaka Wales, perhaps most affected by the Lions tour to Australia, took on Japan in boiling temparatures in Osaka on Saturday. They came away 22-18 winners with Dan Biggar kicking 14 points and Harry Robinson scoring a try in the second half. Japan had the halftime lead following a try by New Zealand born flanker Michael Broadhurst, but Wales came back through Biggar and Robinson, and despite a late try to Yoshikazu Fujita, Wales got their eighth straight win against Japan.Four new caps were selected, with Emyr Phillips, James King, Owen Williams, and 18-year-old Dafydd Howells all getting a chance to represent their country.“It was vital that so many young guys started their Test careers with a victory, but we’re not going to say we’re just happy to win,” said Biggar post match.“We’re disappointed with a poor first-half performance and that led to a nervous finish. We are not using the heat as an excuse but all that was on my mind after the game was shoving my head in a bucket of ice.”It was Japan’s third straight loss, following defeats to Tonga and Fiji in the Pacific Nations Cup.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Midyear Tours Related Articles 416 WEEKS AGO Springboks beat Samoa to win the Quad Series… 416 WEEKS AGO Scotland score late try to snatch victory… 416 WEEKS AGO All Blacks seal series clean sweep with third… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
