”This is our final preparation match so it is important we get enough rugby into us, get rugby ready ahead of our RWC opener against Georgia which is just over two weeks away,” said Wales head coach Warren Gatland.
“It is important we hit the ground running in Japan and we give the players enough time on the field.
