VARIOUS OF TEAM LEAVING AIRPORT STORY: Ireland, the number one ranked team in the world, arrived in Tokyo on Thursday (September 12) ahead of the Rugby World Cup.

Joe Schmidt's men arrive in Japan looking to win their first ever World Cup.

Led by captain Rory Best and flyhalf Jonathan Sexton, Ireland head to Japan as one of the game's biggest enigmas.

After beating reigning champions New Zealand in November, Ireland appeared on top of the world but a disappointing Six Nations campaign has led to doubts coming into the World Cup.

Ireland have been drawn in Pool A alongside hosts Japan, old rivals Scotland, Samoa and Russia.
