Pacific Nations Cup: USA v Japan Full Match

While Pool A of Rugby World Cup 2015 has been deemed the Pool of Death there is no shortage of rugby supporters and journalists who believe that Pool B is to be the most interesting. Pool A will see co-hosts England and Wales compete with Australia, Oceania 1 and the Play-Off Winner with only two advancing to the Play-offs. In Pool B South Africa is the heavy favorite to win all matches against Samoa, Scotland, Japan and the USA. It is, however, not the Springboks matches but all others attracting interest. The reason for this is that it, South Africa aside, is a very unpredictable Pool and it is also to feature the host nation of Rugby World Cup 2019. The development of Japan under Eddie Jones gives reason to suggest that Scotland is going to be seriously pushed.
