Rugby: Toyota, Ajinomoto Stadiums to host two games v Scotland

TOKYO, Feb. 5, Kyodo

Japan will host Scotland at Toyota Stadium and Tokyo's Ajinomoto Stadium for their two test matches in June, the Japan Rugby Football Union announced Friday.

The Brave Blossoms will face Scotland at Toyota Stadium in Aichi Prefecture on June 18 before their second match in the capital on the 25th at Ajinomoto, which will host the opening game of Rugby World Cup 2019.

Kickoff times have not been announced.

Japan suffered their only loss at last year's World Cup against Scotland, going down 45-10 four days after the Brave Blossoms' famous victory over South Africa. Eddie Jones' men became the first team to get knocked out in the group stage despite winning three matches.

Earlier in the week, Rugby Canada General Manager Jim Dixon revealed the Canadians are tentatively set to host the Brave Blossoms in Vancouver on June 11.
