Japan’s injury woes continue

Japan’s horror run with injuries continues, with scrum-half Yuki Yatomi ruled out of the remainder of the tournament with an injury to his left ankle.

Yatomi becomes the fifth casualty of Japan’s original World Cup squad after picking up the injury against the close loss to Fiji.

Yatomi will be replaced by Chulwon Kim, who has been travelling with the main 30 as part of a six-man shadow squad.

Kim was born in South Korea but educated in Japan and has spent time in Australia developing his skills at the New South Wales Waratahs Academy.
