Train Kills Japanese Rugby World Cup star

Former Japan international rugby player Yasunori Watanabe died after falling in front of a train over the weekend, police said on Monday.

Watanabe, 35, fell onto the track from a platform at the Kamakura station in the south of Tokyo and was run over by an incoming train late on Saturday.

The former flanker was capped 32 times – scoring eight tries – and played in three consecutive rugby World Cups from 1999 to 2007.
