Because Scotland won Scotland vs. Samoa in the Rugby World Cup Japan, Group A, Japan's first league breakthrough was not decided in the next game against Samoa.

In Scotland, Scrum Half's Graig Raidrow, who scored 20 points from Japan last time, played an active part in this game, scoring 12 points, and the kick accuracy was still alive.
In addition, the first try of the tournament team in the first half of 29 minutes started with a kick to the opposite side behind the standoff Finn Russell player.
The drop goal set by Stuart Hogg, a full-back player just before the end of the first half, was also vivid.
Japan seems to be the key to how to prevent the last game against Scotland, the attack that made use of the opponent's kick.
On the other hand, the defeated Samoa echoed the slow start of defensive, with 32 tackle misses.
In addition, two players were suspended for 3 matches with dangerous tackles in the first match, and Ed Fidow, a wing player, received two yellow cards and was sent off.

In Group A, all five teams finished 2 games and the top 4 teams had a difference of 4 points or less. Therefore, the first league break in Japan was not decided in the next game against Samoa.
