Oricon Singles Chart

The Oricon Singles Chart is the Japanese music industry-standard singles popularity chart issued daily, weekly and yearly by Oricon. Chart rankings are based on physical singles' sales. Oricon does not include download sales. In Japan, physical sales decreased in the 2000s, while download sales hit three to four times the amount of single sales. Original Confidence Inc. the original Oricon company, was founded by the former Snow Brand Milk Products promoter Sōkō Koike in 1967. That November, the company began publishing a singles chart on an experimental basis. Entitled Sōgō Geinō Shijō Chōsa, it went official on January 4, 1968. Charts are published every Tuesday on Oricon's official website; every Monday, Oricon receives data from outlets, but data on merchandise sold through certain channels does not make it into the charts. For example, the debut single of NEWS, a pop group, was released only through 7-Eleven stores, which are not covered by Oricon, its sales were not reflected in the Oricon charts.

Oricon's rankings of record sales are therefore not accurate. Before data was collected electronically, the charts were compiled on the basis of faxes that were sent from record shops; the first number-one song on the Oricon Singles Chart was "Kitaguni no Futari" by Jackey Yoshikawa and his Blue Comets on November 2, 1967.

Rugby union in Wales

Rugby union in Wales is the national sport and is considered a large part of national culture. Rugby union is thought to have reached Wales in the 1850s, with the national body, the Welsh Rugby Union being formed in 1881. Wales are considered to be one of the most successful national sides in Rugby Union, having won the most Six Nations Championships, as well as having reached 3 World Cup semi finals in 1987, 2011 and 2019, having finished 3rd in the inaugural competition and having finished 4th in 2011 in a repeat of the first third place play-off; the Welsh team of the 1970s is considered to be arguably the greatest national team of all time, prompting many experts in the game to suggest that had the Rugby World Cup existed during this period, Wales would be amongst the list of World Cup winners. Following their fourth-place finish in the latest World Cup, they are ranked 4th in the world, behind England but ahead of Ireland; the national team play at the WRU-owned Principality Stadium, compete annually in the Six Nations Championship, as well as having competed at every Rugby World Cup.

Wales are ranked as a tier-1 nation by World Rugby. Wales competes as one of the 15 "core teams" in the annual World Rugby Sevens Series, won the 2009 Rugby World Cup Sevens; the main domestic competition in Wales is the Pro14, in which Wales have four regional sides in the competition, contested by Irish and Scottish clubs and from 2010-11 Italian teams. Top-level Welsh regional teams compete in the Europe-wide European Rugby Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup and alongside the teams of England's Premiership in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. Beneath the Pro14, club rugby is represented by over 200 WRU affiliated clubs who play in the Welsh Premier Division and the lower Welsh Divisional leagues; the four major Welsh club teams that have shaped the Welsh national team have been Cardiff, Newport and Llanelli, though other clubs which have fought for prominence and provided national sporting heroes during the last 120 years include Bridgend, Pontypool and England exiles London Welsh. Four Welsh teams compete in the British and Irish Cup, a competition for semi-professional and developmental sides from Great Britain and Ireland.

They are the top Premier Division clubs of each region, although the reserve sides of the Pro12 teams were entered in 2015-16. As of February 2019 the Welsh Rugby Union are reviewing the number of regions, with potential consolidation for funding two or three super teams. Rugby-like games have a long history in Wales, with games such as cnapan being played for centuries. Rugby seems to have reached Wales in 1850, when the Reverend Professor Rowland Williams brought the game with him from Cambridge to St. David's College, which fielded the first Welsh rugby team that same year. Rugby expanded in Wales through ex-pupils of the Welsh colleges settling, or students from English colleges and universities returning to the larger industrial hubs of South Wales; this is reflected in the first clubs to embrace the sport in the early to mid-1870s, with Neath RFC recognised as the first Welsh club. The strength of Welsh rugby developed over the following years, which could be attributed to the'big four' South Wales clubs of Newport, Cardiff and Swansea.

With the coming of industrialisation and the railways, rugby too was spread as workers from the main cities brought the game to the new steel and coal towns of south Wales. Merthyr formed in 1876, Brecon in 1874, Penygraig in 1877. In the 19th century as well as the established clubs there were many'scratch' teams populating most towns, informal pub or social teams that would form and disband quickly. Llanelli, as an example, in the 1880s was home not only to Llanelli RFC, but to Gower Road, Morfa Rangers, Prospect Place Rovers, Wern Foundry, Cooper Mills Rangers, New Dock Strollers, Vauxhall Juniors, Moonlight Rovers and Gilbert Street Rovers; these teams would come and go, but some would merge into more settled clubs which exist today, Cardiff RFC was itself formed from three teams, Glamorgan and Wanderers Football Clubs. The South Wales Football Club was established in 1875 to try to incorporate a standard set of rules and expand the sport and this was succeeded by the Welsh Football Union, formed in 1881.

With the forming of the WFU, Wales began competing in recognised international matches, with the first game, against England in 1881. The first Welsh team although diverse in the geography of the clubs represented, did not appear to represent the strength available to Wales; the team was made up of ex-Cambridge and Oxford university graduates and the selection was criticised in the local press after the crushing defeat by England. By the end of the 19th century, a group of exciting Welsh players began to emerge, including Arthur Gould, Billy Bancroft and Gwyn Nicholls; the first'Golden Era' of Welsh rugby is so called due to the success achieved by the national team during the early 20th century. Wales had won the Triple Crown in 1893, but between 1900 and 1914 the team would win the trophy on six occasions, with France joining the tournament (unof
