Justin Tipuric believes that Wales' pre-World Cup training schedule is the toughest he has experienced in his rugby career.

Wales' punishing preparations for a so-called pool of death - they are in the same group as former World Cup winners England and Australia, with only two teams making the quarter-finals - have seen them visit Switzerland and Qatar for intensive training camps.

And after making a powerful statement with their fitness at the last World Cup four years ago - Wales reached a first semi-final since 1987 - head coach Warren Gatland has again overseen a demanding itinerary.

I'm not going to lie, it's tough - the toughest training I have experienced, without a doubt. But it is what you expect. You are going to a World Cup and you don't expect it to be easy. We were fit in 2011 but you want to be fitter again, so you have to push it further. Qatar with the heat and Switzerland with the altitude are different kinds of things that we are not used to.
