The All Blacks have had their first training run in Japan with the players quickly having to adjust from the winter temperatures of back home to the sweltering heat of their Kashiwa base.

The All Blacks arrived in Tokyo on Monday and were able to get to their hotel in Kashiwa, north of Tokyo, after a two‑hour delay caused by the aftermath of a Typhoon.

All Blacks halfback Brad Weber says they were well prepared for the 20 Celsius swing in temperature, with the mercury touching the mid‑30s yesterday.

Weber added that the conditions were similar to those teams experienced in pre‑season training for Super Rugby.

The All Blacks will face South Africa at 9:45pm nest Saturday.
