Japan forced to change hooker for World cup

Japan’s hooker Mitsugu Yamamoto has had to withdraw from the World Cup squad because of a hamstring injury suffered against the Asian Barbarians.

Taku Inokuchi has come in to replace him. Originally the replacement was named as Suntory’s Yusuke Aoki .

 

Inokuchi is the official replacement though Aoki will stay with the team as one of six back-up players that Japan will have in France, though not in the official squad.
