Japan's veteran maulers happy to die in their boots
The dozens of players running, passing, mauling, scrummaging and crashing into one another in Tokyo's Fuwaku club are unremarkable in all but one thing -- their age. Fuwaku, founded in 1948, is one of approximately 150 Japanese clubs that stage competitive, full-contact matches for players over the age of 40 and the oldest man on the park is sprightly 86-year-old lock Ryuichi Nagayama.

KUMAGAYA, Japan
Ryuichi Nagayama, 86, Fuwaku Rugby Club's oldest active player, practices before a match in Kumagaya, Saitama Prefecture, Japan, May 3, 2019. "You tackle and battle each other, but the gathering after the play is so enjoyable and fun," said Nagayama. "We talk about how each other plays and no one gets angry about how we played. The atmosphere is great... In short, there is nothing but rugby (for me)." REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "RUGBY VETERANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY
