The players routinely point to two major factors for their success - preparation and the influence of head coach Jamie Joseph who played for Japan in the 1999 World Cup.
"The players have really taken over", Joseph said of the lead-up to the Boks game. Prop Keita Inagaki and flyhalf Yu Tamura were on the bench four years ago but are in the starting lineup for Sunday, while Fumiaki Tanaka and Amanaki Lelei Mafi are again on the bench.
"It's something we are always ready to do, if it is time to do it". "I think we have made a good impact, not just in the rugby world, but in the entire sporting world".
"We come from a lot of different backgrounds, but we have all come together as one team, all working toward the same goal", Labuschagne said of the Japan team. Everyone talks about it but we're a different team, different players.
The Australian said: "Japan beating South Africa?". We want to make everyone in Japan proud, everyone in this camp, this group. If they do it again, by its very nature, it won't come as much as a surprise but in a World Cup on home soil in which the Brave Blossoms have already excelled themselves it would be a monumental moment for the sport.
