From Morning Report, 8:30 am on 27 March 2019

Former All Black Jamie Joseph has the job of getting Japan to the knockout stages of a rugby World Cup for the first time. He'll have the weight of the host nation's expectations on his shoulders, but it's a challenge the coach for Japan's national team, the Brave Blossoms, is not shying away from. RNZ's Joe Porter was in Tokyo and tracked down the man of Ngati Maniapoto and Ngati Rarua descent.
