- Story Text: Wales players trained on Tuesday (October 22) at the Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium in central Tokyo on Tuesday (October 22) as they build-up towards their mammoth Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa on Sunday (October 27).
Earlier on Tuesday, Wales confirmed they had called up winger Owen Lane into the squad as a replacement for the injured loose forward Josh Navidi.
Wales, who have never won the tournament in its 32 year history, have played in two previous semi-finals, losing both of them.
Most recently, they lost 9-8 to France in the semi-finals in 2011 but they got a measure of revenge last weekend when they knocked the French out of the current tournament.
