Kumagaya, Saitama Pref. – Saitama Panasonic Wild Knights won a rematch of last season’s Top League championship, again ending Tokyo Suntory Sungoliath’s unbeaten season, this time in a 34-17 Japan Rugby League One victory on Saturday.
Wild Knights wing Marika Koroibete was named man of the match for his punishing runs that unhinged Sungoliath’s defense from start to finish, while Ben Gunter, who scored the hosts’ first try at Kumagaya Rugby Stadium, could have earned that honor as well.
