Tokyo Crusaders Rugby Team


The Cru Iron Man is an award given to the most committed player on the Crusader’s roster. It runs as a season-long competition, where players are awarded points for attendance: 1 point for a game, and 2 points for a practice or social.

Often finding himself as captain of the rag-tag band, Vice Captain Matt Sparrow has been a true journeyman this season. Racking up the most minutes on the pitch by a considerable margin, the accidental fly-half covered eight different positions and even snatched the Golden Boot – despite his conversion ratio!
