Defence Blacks looking for rugby victory in Japan

From Morning Report, 6:18 am on 9 September 2019

A Defence Force squad is en route to Japan today - but the battle field is going to be very different. Twenty-nine military personnel will take the paddock at the military equivalent of the Rugby World Cup. Ten countries compete at the event and Britain and Fiji have both secured victory before -- so will it finally be New Zealand's turn to lift the trophy? The Defence Blacks captain, Jaxon Tagavaitau told our defence reporter, Jonathan Mitchell, they've been training extra hard for weeks.
