The final of the playoff tournament, the top league that doubles as the Japanese championship of rugby, will be held at the Chichibu Memorial Rugby Stadium in Tokyo on the 23rd, and Suntory and Panasonic, who have never lost this season, will compete for the top.
Former representative Kenki Fukuoka is the last match
The top league of rugby, which started in 2003 and has continued for 18 seasons, will be the last of this season as a new league will be created next season.
On the 23rd, the final of the playoff tournament, which doubles as the Japan Championship, will be held at the Chichibu Memorial Rugby Stadium in Minato-ku, Tokyo, where Suntory and Panasonic will play against each other.
Suntory, which aims to win the top league for the sixth time in history, has a variety of attacks from fast-paced pass-turning, centered on the standoff Beauden Barrett who has been active in the strong New Zealand national team.
On the other hand, Panasonic, which is aiming for the fifth victory, is good at the tactic of "fast defense", which sets up a counter from a solid defense.
Attention is also focused on the final play of former Japan national team wing Kenki Fukuoka, who has announced that he will retire only this season in order to enter the medical school of the university.
The finals between teams, both of which have never lost since the regular season, will start at 1:10 pm with a maximum of 5,000 spectators.
