Kuala Lumpur: India thrashed Pakistan (34-5) in a heavily one-sided semi-final to enter the final of the HSBC Asian 5 Nations rugby Division II championships played at the Stadium Kelana Jaya on Wednesday.
The victory set up a final clash with Guam, who beat Indonesia (38-17) in other semi-final, on Friday, June 1.
Pakistan, under new coach and former Ireland international and European Cup champion Justin Fitzpatrick, came into the big contest against their fiercest rival India after a strong preparation. But that didn’t stop a superior Indian team from winning. India are coached by Mitsutake Hagimoto, who also coaches the Japan Women’s team.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
