    Hi Aled, welcome to the forum!

    Wakanohana 1, Takanohana 2 Tsuyuharai/Tachimochi

    I updated the list to include Akinoshima and Takanonami at Taka's Intai dohyo-iri (very absent minded forgot to do that before) I have a bit more candidate's, possibly for Waka1, but I'm starting to feel satisfied with the names we have for Taka's. Finding tsuyuharai/tachimochi is quite interesting, maybe I might start a dedicated thread to them (if one isn't already out there?) since they are an important facet of sumo (and bearing one's sword in ancient Japan was a very high honour, since the sword was the symbol of a samurai's spirit)

    Yes it was lovely, they have a great rivalry them two, you always get a great match and even though Mita has been running on an empty tank this basho, I kinda had a feeling he wouldn't go down. Awesome match!

    Just seen the Juryo results and wow Tomokaze, he put in a great performance this basho, finishing strong, really wish the lad well. Now he can go and play a beautiful piano symphony for Yoshikaze...

    To put it bluntly sir, yes I was pretty astonished he did it twice myself but then I remembered Osaka.. That was Goeido's finest moment indeed... https://youtu.be/wwlheYE5MjE

    Mitakeumi resembling a car without petrol today...just goes to show how much the lad put into his yusho win, he still hasn't picked up his energy levels yet, it took him some time to climb the dohyo after his loss. Hopefully this will encourage him to pick up his training, I and many other would love to see him do well. Ichinojo finally came to life again, it will be interesting to see what score he finishes this basho on...will he just scrape through again?

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Takakeisho seemed most talkative in his post bout interview, in fact it was the most talkative I've ever seen him! A deserved victory for him, Kisenosato looked very angry with himself on the way down the hanamichi. Mitakeumi looks spent! No energy at all! Poor lad... Excellent opening day, plenty of excitement and it's great just watching a basho where I don't have to bite my nails off, thanks to Kakuryu's kyujo
