From the bottom of the banzuke, the TORCH starts here:

Start-of-2018 Rikishi: Shachinofuji

 And the first TORCH MATCH of 2018 is on Day 3:

SHACHINOFUJI vs HATTORIZAKURA (who was also in the 2016 & 2017 first TORCH match of the year!!!)
RANK

Player(s) up for points:
the Wildcard's (ceremonial default) rikishi/rank pick is JONOKUCHI 25 WEST
Mutsu’ohideki's rikishi pick is HATTORIZAKURA
a loss = 1 point, but a win = 3 points and an opportunity for more points in the next torch match

standings:
83 players with 0 points
