Adams included in Wales World Cup training squad

Warriors wing Josh Adams has been included in Wales 42-man training squad for this year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Adams was one of Wales’ stand-out players in their Grand Slam-winning campaign this year and scored three tries in their five matches to take his haul to four tries in 11 internationals.

Adams is one of 36 members of the Grand Slam-winning squad in the training squad which includes two uncapped players in prop Rhys Carre and wing Owen Lane.

The players will link up with Wales on a rolling start, after each has received four weeks off following their final club match.

Preparations will begin at the state-of-the-art WRU National Centre of Excellence with the whole squad expected in camp by the middle to end of June.

The rigorous schedule will prepare the squad for their first overseas training camp in the Swiss Alps where they will  ‘live high’ and ‘train low’ in the resort of Fiesch then return to Cardiff for more preparation ahead of back-to-back fixtures against England at Twickenham (August 11) and Principality Stadium respectively (August 17).
