Morgan Named In Wales Training Squad

Bristol Rugby's Matthew Morgan has been named in the Wales' 47-man training squad to prepare for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

The Greene King IPA Championship player of the season is included in Warren Gatland's squad.

Following individually tailored rest periods, the squad will begin to meet up for initial conditioning training at the WRU National Centre of Excellence from June 15.

They will then embark on the first of three intensive training camps in Switzerland from July 1-15. The players will then head to Doha on July 20 for further bespoke training for nine days.

The squad will return to prepare for the first Dove Men Test against Ireland at the Millennium Stadium (Saturday August 8), before three days training in North Wales. They will then return to Spala for seven nights on August 16 ahead of the return warm-up fixture in Dublin against Ireland on August 29.

Warren Gatland and his fellow selectors will then whittle down the squad to the 31 players who will contest the 2015 Rugby World Cup on August 31.

Wales will then play the final Dove Men Test against Italy, at the Millennium Stadium, on Saturday September 5.
