The Wallabies are vowing to make up for lost time after arriving in Japan half a day later than planned to begin their final preparations for the Rugby World Cup.

Australia’s 31‑man playing squad and support staff were greeted by an enthusiastic welcome in Tokyo, with their arrival having been pushed back by a damaging typhoon which struck the country.

A group of about 40 supporters, who appeared to all be Japanese were clad in green and gold, formed a line and shouted greetings as the players disembarked.

The Wallabies face the Flying Fijians at 4.45pm next Saturday in their first pool game of the Rugby World Cup.
