Lydiate's lament: Let it rain

Wales flanker Dan Lydiate is hoping for some rain amid the heat of pre-World Cup training in Switzerland.

The next camp is in the searing temperatures of Doha in the Middle East, but Lydiate hopes the preparation will stand them in good stead for the tournament which starts in September.

The 2013 British and Irish Lion is bidding for a place in Wales' 31-strong squad for the tournament.

Wales announce their squad on 31 August to face Uruguay, Australia, Fiji and hosts England.
