Tonight the only two undefeated teams will clash in Tokyo.

Schalk Burger
After 4 games in the Japanese Top League only two teams have won all their matches, this will come to an end tonight in the first match of the fifth round when the pool B top of the table Kobelco Steelers will be hosted by the Suntory Sungoliath, kick off at 7:30 p.m. Japanese time

Before heading back to South Africa to be part of the Springboks for the last two matches of the Rugby Championship impressive back rower Schalk Burger has been named in the starting lineup for the hosts. Along him the second foreign player chosen by Aussie coach Andy Friend to start is Samoan Tusi Pisi. An understandable choice, given that between the two of them they have collected 3 out of 4 Man of the Match awards so far.

Burger will face fellow South African 6 ft 11’ giant Andries Bekker who has been named again in the starting XV by coach Gary Gold, also from the Republic.
Also in the starting team New Zealander Fraser Anderson, who has scored his first try of the season last week against the Red Hurricanes.

Toyota Verblitz, currently third on the ladder will host Kinetsu Liners tomorrow in a bid to close the gap to the leaders.

Aussie favourite Nick Cummins has been named in the staring team for Coca Cola Red Sparks away game versus the Ricoh Black Rams.

In the pool A leaders Yamaha J├║bilo will have a tricky match on Sunday against Kubota Spears, from which Toshiba Brave Lupus and Panasonic Wild Knights, sitting in second and third position one and two points adrift respectively can profitate. Both team will have relatively easy games: Brave Lupus will visit bottom of the ladder Toyota Shuttles tomorrow and the Wild Knights will host new comers Sanix Blues on Sunday.
