Jake White’s Toyota Verblitz beat Suntory Sungoliath 43-34 in the Japanese Top League Cup final in Chichibu on Saturday.

White’s side scored seven tries to Sungoliath’s five, with former Bulls star Jason Jenkins grabbing a brace, while another South African, Gio Aplon, who was the skipper on the day, also got in on the act with a try of his own.

The Kobe Steelers claimed the Japanese league title in December last year when they hammered Suntory Sungoliath 55-5 in the final.

Verblitz finished fourth.

Besides Jenkins and Aplon, Verblitz is home to a number of other South Africans, including Lionel Cronje, Carl Wegner, Reniel Hugo, Clinton Swart and Jannes Kirsten.
