Japan RWC

Postby Setanta » Wed Jan 02, 2019 3:09 pm

Serious question - as Japan has serious cultural problems regarding Tattoos; what are the implications for the RWC. The south-sea islanders have tattoos as part of their culture as do the Maoris, to which you can add certain English, Aussie and Kiwi players. There's even the odd Irish player.

Yes, typo, hit a full-stop instead of a question mark.

They ran this story about Beckham before the Wendyball WC about 10 years ago. Shouldn't be an issue.

World rugby have asked players to cover them up. Players have said that's fine.

There's plenty of tattooed Pacific islanders playing in Japan, hardly a new issue

Full body suits for some of the coloured-in spidey feckers?

It will be more awkward for those with leg tatoos.

Apparently very long sleeves will also cover the leg tatoos.

I read that somewhere.

It's amazing what you can read on the interweb.

Anyway I thought it was practically respectable to be a gangster in Japan. They like everyone else there conform to strict codes of conduct and only break the law within parameters agreed with the police.
