The Samurai Blue returned from Yangon with all three points following Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Myanmar, and Dan Orlowitz and Alan Gibson guested to review the game. We also touch on last week's friendly win over Paraguay (to 35:18), before moving on to the Levain Cup 1/4 finals, then look ahead to a pivotal weekend in J1, with the fixture list highlighted by the top two squaring off in Kashima and a Loser Leaves Town match in Yokohama.
