Today's a travel day for Ireland and their press pack and that means we're on the road to Fukuoka. Before departure, Cian Tracey and Jonathan Bradley join Ruaidhri O'Connor to reflect on a difficult night for Joe Schmidt's men against Russia.

Can a weekend off give them the lift they so appear to need? We hear from captain Rory Best about the team's confidence, while one of our party reveals he made a show of himself in front of the skipper in the hotel tennis court yesterday.

There's plenty more happening in Japan with an exciting weekend of rugby ahead, the show must go on after all!
