As mentioned in the previous post, the match between Japan and Canada ended with a thrilling last minute try, leaving Japan 2 points behind the Canadians, with the conversion to come.
Shotaro Onishi was the man entrusted with the hugely important kick that would see his team drawing the match. Onishi stepped up to it, and with the Canadians charging at him, kept his head, followed through, and made history.
Surely one of the biggest nights in Japanese rugby, and the global audience will agree, one of the better finishes to a game we've seen this year.
