All Blacks started their first training session in Japan

All Blacks landed yesterday in Japan, Tokyo where they have been greeted by hundreds of fans and the youngest performed a haka when the All Blacks arrived at the hotel. Head coach of All Blacks Steve Hansen is very surprised by the reception, and he said:

“I’ve been to five of these things and never seen anything like that so if that’s an indication of the kind of support all the teams are going to get then it’s going to be fantastic.”

We all hope that the weather will be fine and that the current Typhoon Faxai won’t affect the tournament in the next few weeks.
