    Wales have been covering rugby balls in baby oil to prepare for humidity at the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

    The technique is among a number tried as Wales build-up to their Pool D tournament opener against Georgia on Monday, 23 September in Tokyo City.

    “We’ve been using wet balls and been using baby oil on them as well,” said coach Warren Gatland.

    “We’ve taped them up as well, and we’ve already been through that process in the [training] camps we had.”
