What they said:

Head Coach Kenny Murray said: “I have been impressed with the performances the guys have put in over the past two games and it is vital that we continue to build on these going into Friday’s game.

“There have been a lot of positives to take from our games against Samoa and Hong Kong China, but we know we must fix the mistakes if we want to walk away with a good result.

“Japan are a dynamic and fast team that have also had some big scores against their opponents, but we are ready for the challenge and are looking forward to getting back out on the pitch for our final pool match.”
