    If anybody wonders why they sometimes give what seems like an extra push when their opponent appears to be on the way out already, Kirishima showed today what happens if you don't.

    As I understand it, he had to be persuaded to have a professional sumo career in the first place. His main weapon, leg movement, is gone with injuries. I don't see him hanging on if he drops.

    I wouldn't judge him based on this match alone. His tachiai was tentative, and he didn't really have time to do anything after that. Who knows what he could have done had he gone for the belt straight away.

    I wouldn't be surprised. He's managed to hang in there for a long time for his size and style. He's clearly slowing down, which has made his weapons dull. Time catches us all.

    That was a flash of what Endo did so well before his injury. His legwork is phenomenal.

    Yeah I was wondering about that. There was a very distinct head-meets-hard surface -sound when Ura fell. Their attitude towards head injuries is still shamefully lax.

    Just a guess: Something in between. Probably not a full reset, but they'd have to be impressive in their next outing.

    How would you say he compares to others with a total of six basho of experience in sumo?

    Agreed. Terunofuji only pushed Takayasu when the match was still very much on. Like he's supposed to do.

    Weeeellll... Hokuseiho has shot up the ranks faster than his skillset has developed. He'll get to work on a bit of mobility and speed before his Jyryo debut.

    Oh that is a good point. Is what they'll never say.

    No. I'm predicting what what the whingers will use as argument. I think Kisenosato's promotion was well deserved, and have no question over Terunofuji's.

    They won't. They'll just appeal to Terunofuji's better recent record.
