JAPAN kicked off their 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign with a convincing 30-10 win over Russia.
Winger Kotaro Matsushima scored a sensational hat-trick to get the hosts off to a flying start - with Pieter Labuschagne grabbing the other.
Kirill Golosnitskiy had given Russia a shock lead in the opening five minutes in a nervy, scrappy opening.
