RWC: Expanding the mind with new experiences

From Checkpoint, 6:15 pm on 20 September 2019

While tonight's opening ceremony and opening match in Tokyo between hosts Japan and Russia at the Rugby World Cup are the major focus for today, the All Blacks went through their captains run this afternoon ahead of tomorrow night's highly anticipated pool clash with the Springboks in Yokohama. This morning though several All Blacks, including halfback TJ Perenara, visited the Fokutoku shrine in Chuo-ku, Tokyo, to soak up some more of the unique Japanese culture and history. Rugby reporter Joe Porter was there.
