I came to Sapporo city in August 2008 and have
only played for the Barbarians B Team over the 2009
I played mainly cricket in high school so I haven't
played rugby since junior high school about twenty
four odd years ago and it shows, but it's great
to have a run around with some good old boys a lot
more dedicated than myself.
I played on the wing last season and always enjoy
a good kick and chase for the line. Looking forward
to an injury free 2010.
Koro played for the club in the 1993 season at
centre and was the star of the show in the back-line.
A hard running, stright running centre Koro made
breaks at will and fed his outside backs for many
tries in the corner. Koro was invited to play for
the club through the Hamilton Old Boys Rugby Club,
one of many players that the club has had from the
strong Hamilton club. Koro returned to NZ after
his 93 season helping the team win the 1993 All
PJ Williams played for the Barbarians in 2002
at first five and fullback.
PJ was a key member of the team helping to win the
East Japan final that year.
It was certainly though his 7 penalty goals and
the teams 21-0 lead at half time against Mandera
in the semi-final that was his finest hour. A gifted
kicker of the ball, placekicking, punting, dropkicking
the team to victory that season, finished with an
88% kicking record over 30 odd games.
Revelled in the Sapporo lifestyle and culture like
all that come here, now a teacher at Cambridge High
School and started his rugby coaching career in
