The long anticipated 2019 rugby season is upon us.

What a landmark season it promises to be with the Rugby World Cup being held in Japan. I am excited about the opportunity to lead my country on the world stage in what will be an extraordinary tournament.

The Super Rugby season with the Sunwolves is also an exciting opportunity with the obvious challenge to improve on last year's success driving this team forward. We anticipate another strong season with the Sunwolves which will be the ideal preparation for the Japan side to launch itself into the Rugby World Cup and to go deep into the tournament.

Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm for rugby in this country - I hope together we can create rugby history in 2019.
