Rugby-Japan dedicate historic victory to typhoon victims

Japan captain Michael
Leitch dedicated the team’s 28-21 victory over Scotland at the
Rugby World Cup on Sunday to those affected by the super typhoon
which nearly forced the cancellation of the match.
The victory for the Brave Blossoms sent them through to the
World Cup quarter-finals for the first time, the first Asian
country to achieve the feat and the first tier-two nation to
reach the knockout stage since 2007.
