Wales are covering soccer chunks to prepare in the Rugby World Cup in Japan for humidity.
The technique is just one of a number tried as Wales build-up on Monday, 23 September in Tokyo City for their Pool D championship opener against Georgia.
“We’ve been using wet chunks and been using baby oil onto them as well,” said coach Warren Gatland.
“We have taped them up as well, and we have already been through that process in the [training] camps we had.”
Gatland says trainings in Turkey and Switzerland have been meant to assist his players cope with the states in Japan.
“We’ve been into two camps where one was at altitude and it was quite hot in Switzerland, then it was the late 30s at Turkey,” he explained.
“We’ve done as far as possible in terms of dealing with the heat.
“I feel that the humidity is going to be a variable. With the subsequent kick-offs those temperatures are going to fall to about 20 levels, although It’s possible to see it is.
“It is definitely going to be a lot cooler, but the battle then is going to be the warmth and dealing with a slippery ball. It’s the way we deal with that.
“The players who’ve been to New Zealand will have gotten that. I come from Hamilton, it is incredibly humid there.
“We know what it’s like and we have players who have undergone a great deal of night rugby, so we feel we’ve trained well. We’re looking forward to it”
After facing Georgia, Wales and Fiji, Australia and Uruguay play with as they challenge for the quarter-finals at the final effort of Gatland in charge.
