Rugby: Goromaru sharp in preseason debut with the Reds
BRISBANE, Australia, Feb. 12, Kyodo
Japan fullback Ayumu Goromaru made an impact in his brief debut for the Reds in the Super Rugby side's final preseason match on Friday.
Coming off the bench in the 69th minute of a 31-18 defeat to fellow Australian side the Brumbies, Goromaru made a try-saving tackle reminiscent of the one he made against Scotland's Tommy Seymour at last year's Rugby World Cup.
Goromaru, who arrived in Brisbane on Saturday and took part in his first practice on Monday, converted a try at the end of the game at Ballymore Stadium for his first points with the Reds.
