Second-row Amato Fakatava scored two tries as Japan defeated Chile 42-12 with a bonus-point performance at the Stadium de Toulouse in Pool D on Sunday.
Fly-half Rodrigo Fernandez scored Chile’s first ever Rugby World Cup try but Fakatava grabbed his first shortly afterwards before wing Jone Naikabula added a second after Chilean prop Matias Dittus was shown a yellow card.
Chile were again reduced to 14 men after captain Martin Sigren was sin-binned before half-time and Fakatava added another try to give Japan a 21-7 interval lead.
Brave Blossoms centre Dylan Riley also received a yellow card before number eight Alfonso Escobar reduced Chile’s deficit with their second try but scores from flanker Michael Leitch, inside-centre Ryoto Nakamura and replacement second-row Warner Dearns embellished Japan’s victory margin.
