The Sunwoves are a professional rugby union team and is Japan's representative team in SANZAAR's international Super Rugby competition. They joined the competition in 2016 and are based in Toyko, Japan. The name 'Sunwolves' is a hybrid comprising the blazing icon of the 'Land of the Rising Sun' and a wolf which represents a pack hunting mentality and a dedicated team ethos of protecting one another. The striking logo depicts the breaking of a new dawn for Japanese rugby and a fearsome representation of the team's desired playing style as they seek to utilise speed, unity and a fearless spirit to face their challenges.

We look forward to playing this side in years to come and watching them grow as a team and country.
