This year’s tournament may commence on September 8 but for players and staff, the campaign begins months in advance. Members of the Wales training squad convened at the end of May for a preliminary camp, which lasted five weeks. For Rugby World Cup the full squad came together at the end of June to begin their challenging training and preparation.

They are currently in their second and final week in the Swiss Alps, undertaking vital altitude training. After completing this phase, they will proceed to a second camp in Turkey. In the France Rugby World Cup, there are warm-up matches against England and South Africa to contend with.

Following these matches, the final squad will spend two months away from home at the tournament, which concludes on October 28. Even if the pool stages were to eliminate Warren Gatland’s side, their departure would still occur approximately five and a half months after the initial assembly at the Vale.

This demonstrates the extensive duration of their preparation and commitment to the tournament. It is an extensive undertaking, to say the least. When considering the two training camps the Test weeks and the tournament RWC itself players can anticipate being away from home for up to 12 weeks.     

The Importance of Family in the Rugby World Cup Journey

Since Wales’ preparations began earlier this Rugby World Cup year, players like Taulupe Faletau and Kieran Hardy have seen their young families grow. The separation from loved ones during such a significant time is considered a substantial sacrifice by players, and some, they are unwilling to undergo this experience.


Justin Tipuric’s decision to step away from international duty ahead of the World Cup was partially influenced by injury concerns. However, the opportunity to spend more time with loved ones was also a major factor in his decision. However, for Hardy whose wife Ellie gave birth to their second daughter Noa in May enduring the challenging times is worthwhile knowing that his family back home fully supports him.

He said during the training camp in Fiesch that there is sacrifice and it is difficult being away from loved ones, especially at this stage because it’s quite early on. But the sacrifices will be worth it hopefully. I’m in regular contact with them. They have always been supportive and my wife has been fantastic backing me all the way. They have given me the chance to come out here and pursue my dreams so I consider myself fortunate for RWC.

Fortunately family is of utmost importance to Wales Rugby World Cup Coach Gatland and his coaching staff. Trudi Gatland’s wife has established a WhatsApp group to ensure the well-being and support of squad members’ partners during the campaign just as she did four years ago. Speaking at a special family day before their trip to Switzerland she stated.

Australia’s Tough Start under Eddie Jones

I’ve spent most of the day on my phone creating the WhatsApp group so that we can stay connected with each other. That WhatsApp group is our way of keeping in touch. Anything you need just WhatsApp me and I’ll make sure Warren takes care of it. Gatland who is embarking on his fifth France Rugby World Cup with a group of players has always prioritized family.

For instance, Faletau joined his teammates in Switzerland later than the rest after assisting in the care of his newborn son. Additionally, before the Wales Six Nations game against France earlier this year, Ken Owens was given permission to fly back for the birth of his second child before returning to captain the side. Even during Lions duty France Rugby World Coach Gatland ensured that Josh Adams could witness his partner Georgia giving birth via Zoom while on the 2021 tour in South Africa.

The Wales boss emphasized the importance of family matters at the family day. We need to strike the right balance between the work we do here and the hard work but also recognise that family comes first. During RWC It has always been a significant aspect for us. Taking care of families partners and children is crucial. By getting that aspect right we can make strides in getting other things right.
