They beat South Korea 38-0 in the final to put themselves in pole position take the Crown Prince of Johor Cup at the 2nd leg in Hong Kong next weekend. South Korea, who had knocked Japan out in an extra-time Semi-Final had no answer to the speed of Kudachige and his teammates, who also maintained their handling skills despite the heavy thunderstorms, which interrupted the tournament mid-afternoon. Both sides move on with their other opponents to Hong Kong for the 2nd and final leg of the series next weekend.
