True. A disappointing performance.

Didn't see it all by any means... the only bright spots from our PoV is that both Wales tries were set up by good passes by 'our' boys - one from Nicholas, the other from Baldwin.

Pretty poor game from what I saw, quite a few try scoring opportunities wasted by both teams, probably a game that the welsh could have done without, after already playing 2 Very physically demanding games against Aus and NZ. The game against NZ was brutal, with some very nasty cheap shots by the NZ players. I think this welsh team would probably have done better if the Japan game was sandwiched between the AUS and NZ games and not after them, although I presume it’s the same for Japan.

A very scrappy match with frequent recurrent errors. For once Wales were physically much bigger than their opponents some of whom looked barely 12. However this Wales U20 side could not dominate and at times were outplayed.
 The Japanese players, in general, had good hands and could catch the ball while accelerating at the Welsh line, remarkably powering their way over the gain line, sometimes with the help of one or two fellow players -Wales rarely had the same pace, or picked a predictable line and usually knocked on. On top of that we managed to kick most possession away once more. 
We have a few talented individuals but with such a poor game-plan and coaching it's not surprising that, had the Japanese not missed easy conversions they would have won.

The coach doesn't play. So don't think this result necessarily Reflects badly on the coaches - maybe the squad is not good enough and even Wayne, Steve and co could not get much more out of them. Very good for the future of rugby to see Japan, Georgian & Italy doing so well tonight. Saw half of first half of France and they were fabulous - the 'real' France from out 1970s dreams! Hopefully that will translate to their senior team soon.

Would be good, but are their youngsters going to be drowned out by foreigners ?

Therein lies the problem for France. Too many young players fall by the wayside by not being given Top 14 games. A mirror image of the Premiership football debacle where less than 30% of players are eligible to play for England.

Yep at the moment and for the last few years only players playing in Argentina can be picked for the national side, so as far as I know the whole squad are all Jaguares players (as I can't imagine any players from their domestic league making it)
