Japan captain Michael Leitch bagged two tries on Saturday as the enterprising Brave Blossoms celebrated their return to the Pacific Nations Cup with a 34-20 win over the United States in Fiji.

"I think it all came down to preparation. We've been together since February and all the hard work has paid off," said Leitch, adding his side is "on the right track" ahead of the World Cup.
