England dig deep to fend off Japan

Despite trailing at halftime, England found their try-scoring form in the second half to get the better of Japan at Twickenham.

Match Commentary

81'England were very poor in the first half but improved dramatically ahead of their final November international clash with Australia.
81'Japan were brilliant in the first half and can take so much encouragement from their display. They didn't manage to take it through to the second half, but in the first they looked a very good rugby team and are building nicely towards their home World Cup.
