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.
