Rhino has strong personal ties with Japan as a result of which we have strongly supported the current tour to England by the rugby club of Boei Daigaku - the Japanese National Defence Academy. The tourists are very grateful for being hosted by Old Actonians, where they trained today in preparation for their set piece 1st XV game tomorrow against the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. The NDA 2nd XV played an OA Invitation XV on Sunday, going down 34-21 in an excellent match in cold conditions. Their short trip has also taken in a visit to Rugby School and the London Irish - Worcester Warriors game at the Madjedski Stadium on Saturday.
