Japan vs Romania Rugby Live Watch online, The Beukeboom name is most associated with hockey around these parts, but it’s on the rugby pitch that this particular member of the family is making an emphatic mark.
Yeah, I played a lot of hockey growing up,” the 6-foot-5, 250-pounder said. “Early mornings to the rink and late nights at the rink all through my childhood and the majority of my teenage years. (But) as soon as I touched a rugby ball and started playing with the Lindsay Rugby Club (in Ontario) I fell in love with the sport and ice hockey quickly took a back seat.
I’m really excited about the World XV game,” said Joseph, who is currently in camp with his team in Fukuoka ahead of Saturday’s test with Romania. “It’s obviously a big match. We play it one week before we play the Wallabies and as we know from the past the World XV always brings a strong contingent of international rugby players, so I can’t wait.”
Hooker Shota Horie and fly-half Harumichi Tatekawa have been named as co-captains for the squad that features four uncapped players: hooker Yusuke Niwai, fullback Shota Emi, centre Derek Carpenter and back William Tupou. Players from Japan’s Super Rugby side Sunwolves make up a bulk of the squad, which also includes the return of Tui and Waikato Chiefs loose forward Michael Leitch from self-imposed international exile.
