Former Black Rams Tokyo and England player James Haskell is known for his love of the phrase "bin juice" in reference to players who get little to no playing time and whose duties are generally confined to the training paddock.

On Thursday, the last day before a three-day break from media duties, the Brave Blossoms opted to put three such players in front of the traveling Japanese journalists at their Rugby World Cup base at Stade Ernest Wallon.

Fly-half Jumpei Ogura, scrum-half Kenta Fukuda and wing Siosaia Fifita have just 16 caps between them — Fukuda has yet to play for the national team — and a combined zero minutes of World Cup experience.
