An incredible try was scored this weekend in the Top League and it should show to everyone just how entertaining this League in Japan is.

In recent years, some of the biggest and most famous rugby players in the world are now playing their rugby in this league. This season proves to be the best yet, with an incredible list of players being involved from outside of Japan.
Here is a list of just some of the big players in this league.

In quite a stark contrast, in Super Rugby, we are seeing an ever-dwindling list of players that can be considered World Class, with lots of the big names either moving to France, England or Japan.
The likes of Quade Cooper and Will Genia are also moving away from the Super Rugby competition as well. If you look at the Super Rugby competition this year, there is only one real team that has any feeling of a stacked and exciting team, and that is the Crusaders.
The Japanese League is stacked full of massive big names players, tie that in with so many of the Japanese team that got the the quarter final of the World Cup and you have a truly exciting competition on your hands.
Here is a try that was scored yesterday in the game between Suntory Sungoliaths and Toshiba Brave Lupus.
Australia centre Samu Kervei was in the middle of the action bouncing off 3 defenders before there was an INSANE through the legs pass to set up the try.
Super Rugby can’t be as exciting as this hey…?
