World Rugby chair­man

Bill Beau­mont said: “Ja­pan 2019 is shap­ing up to be World Rugby’s most suc­cess­ful legacy pro­gramme to date. With one year still to go, it’s al­ready set­ting a gold stan­dard for en­gage­ment across the sport­ing spec­trum. “Cre­at­ing a sus­tain­able legacy is a cen­tral pil­lar in our ma­jor event plan­ning and de­liv­er­ing a tan­gi­ble, long-term im­pact be­yond the six-week event is crit­i­cal to the event’s suc­cess.” This ap­plies when play­ers have parts of their body wrapped in dif­fer­ent types of tape by phys­ios to help them play. Li­ne­out jumpers also usu­ally have lift­ing straps on their legs to help lifters hoist them up.
