Challenge 16 Update – Rugby World Cup Match Schedule Announced

by MelanieHoskin

My Rugby Obsession challenges have hit somewhat of a stall, what with no All Blacks vs England game this year (Challenge 18) and the Commonwealth Games organisers failing to announce internationally when tickets went on sale, despite me being signed up to every e-newsletter they had right back when I first set up these challenges.  Challenge 17, therefore, looks like a ‘no-go’ since it’s all sold out.

However, Challenge 16 is still very much on the radar, especially now that today the Match Schedule was announced for the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan.

I’m already eyeing up an itinerary that takes in Sapporo for the first few days, then Kobe, then up to Tokyo before finishing up my Japan trip in Yokohama as pool games end.  Can you guess the two teams I’m supporting from that plan?

Having never been to Japan before would love some travel tips of what to do in the downtime between games.
