Ayumu Goromaru for Japan

17 points: Ayumu Goromaru

Japan made it two wins from two in the Pacific Nations Cup after beating the United States 37-29 on Saturday, with Ayumu Goromaru kicking 17 points.

The full-back converted all four of Japan's tries and also sent over three penalties to help the Brave Blossoms claim a bonus-point victory.

Ryu Koliniasi Holani scored two tries while scrum-half Fumiaki Tanaka and winger Akihito Yamada scored a try apiece in reply to three tries from USA star Blaine Scully, with Cam Dolan adding another for the spirited home side.

Japan, who began their campaign with a win in Canada last week, now have nine points from two matches and host Italy next week in a friendly.
