Jamie Joseph paid his respects after the tenacious success over Scotland of Japan.
Josephs side have made it to some quarter-finals of a Rugby World Cup after a victory in Yokohama for the first time in their history.
After the success, Joseph was incredibly keen to pay his respects before analysing any of the rugby played to those that lost their lives .
I believe you can just search around and see how this is a special a moment for our staff and for this country, stated the head coach.
Before I talk about the footy, I truly want to admit the families whove lost people in the typhoon today.
That really motivated our staff. We spoke about this morning. The players wanted to play since whilst observing tonight there are a lot of people who arent. I simply would love to admit that.

Sometimes those sorts of things could be overwhelming but I think that [playing ] came out at the game now, especially when sometimes it was really, really rough, Joseph included within his post-match media conference.
I thought that the Scottish group were incredible in all parts of the match, so they took it too us straight from the start, he added.
Japan went knowing they had to win to make the quarter-finals for your first time. The home side hit back to direct 28-7 after 44 minutes, after conceding the first things of this Test.
They scored [ancient ] and in some parts of the game they out-played and out-matched us, but it is the tenacity of our team at crucial parts of the Evaluation that paid dividends on us.
Then were only ready to hang on until the very end and I believe that many of that was to do with what is going on inside our own camp and also the simple fact that were playing a house World Cup.
All of us see, and feel, the total amount of service that is behind our team and that is incredibly motivational.
Japan will face-off against South Africa in the quarter-finals, a fixture thats already dipped in Rugby World Cup history at 2015 due to the Brave Blossoms triumph over the Springboks.
Well begin next week and were going to go from there. The key to our victories is our preparation, being coordinated from the start of the week also with constant messages, said captain Michael Leitch.
So, we will do that and were coming out weekly to have a good match and shed. We are coming out to acquire .
