“We are really happy with the final 31we believe there is a great blend to the group, concerning ability, age and experience profile and we’re incredibly excited about heading into Japan and that which lies ahead,” Gatland added.
“All these players have delivered and performed for Wales and have the chance to represent their nation at the game’s showpiece tournament.”
What began as an training group of 42 players had been diminished by 2 injuries to number eight Taulupe Faletau and fly-half Gareth Anscombe.
