Wales lock Adam Beard set to join full training following appendix surgery
As he continues his recovery from appendix surgery wales lock Adam Beard is made to combine World Cup coaching this week.
The Ospreys forward had a surgery in Cardiff on Wales championship passing day.
Beard flew to Japan before the opening Pool D game against Georgia, following his coworkers arrived linking up with the group, and he appears to be on track for an expected playing return.
Wales face Fiji in Oita before assembly Uruguay in Kumamoto four days afterwards.
Beardy had that operation, which was unfortunate, and then he lost three or four kilos, Wales head of physical performance Paul Stridgeon said.
He is a great kid who does what we request, as do each of the gamers, so weve only been getting as much food into him as we can.
He has been working hard, doing some additional weights sessions as well, and he has rehabbed well.
He is back into full practice this week, so he has performed well. He might be a few kilos down what he had been before, but that wont affect him in the game.
The Wales team came on Sunday at Beppu, where they will ready to fulfill with Fiji, knowing that victory will secure a quarter-final place and possible battle against France.
And should they finish top of the team with an unbeaten record, it might be the time for Wales to achieve that feat at a World Cup.
The boys are in a fantastic location, Stridgeon added.
This ten-day turnaround (between the Australia and Fiji matches ) has enabled us a bit of time. The boys were a bit beaten up following the Australia game, therefore we had a couple of retrieval days an optional session on day three, post-game.
We worked really hard at the pre-World Cup camps, but we also train very intensively when were together in a Exam week.
The coaching group makes it possible for us to get the strength and conditioning work so we need.
We do not train for extended periods, but we train , and as the coaches allow the boys some good recovery time and a while we can make some great gains, even in tournaments.
All our trainers know that being strong and fit rewards the team massively in our matches, and they back us up on that. They are constantly banging that fitness drum with us.
Wales head coach Warren Gatland will name his crew to face Fiji on Monday, and it looks like being the unchanged starting XV for a third match.
Wholesale switches will be then made by gatland for Uruguay, when begins of the competition can be anticipated for players like James Davies, Rhys Carre, Dillon Lewis, Bradley Davies and Hallam Amos.
And Stridgeon, who has worked with the Irish and British Lions and England on the global phase, has no doubt where Wales current set of players endure in fitness provisions.
It is the best-prepared squad Ive worked with by far, he added.
The sport is a lot more running-based now, the connections are larger and it takes the boys a lot more time to recuperate from the games.
The fitness of the boys compared to four years ago, eight years back… once I began in 2002, the game was completely different. You wouldnt recognise it.
Because of the laws of this game, I think players will stop getting much bigger. It is a lot more of a game that is running-based. You do not see significant 140kg props any longer because of the sum of running.
It will level out and gamers body weights will plateau.
The game is getting quicker all the time as players get faster and fitter, but I cant find it going much further using the rules weve got now.
