Spain have been using yoga to relax and prepare the minds at their pre-tournament base at Epsom College after playing a warm-up match against local side Clapham.

Australia meanwhile, have been full focus taking on England’s Development side, who will compete in the World Cup Festival, in a friendly scrimmage at their warm-up base at Wycombe Abbey.

Two of the home nations, Ireland and Wales, met up just down the road in Bramley for a warm up game to get the legs going.
