Terrible weather conditions won’t derail Ireland’s plans because of their World Cup opener against Scotland on Sunday, states abilities coach Richie Murphy.
Reports earlier this week indicated that the Pool A fixture at Yokohama was place be played amid a downpour that was ferocious, but the forecast is currently calling rain that was much lighter.
“We have only got to adapt to the conditions,” said Murphy.
“World Cups are all about being elastic.”
The abilities coach included:”Who plays at the team, what the terms are or what a referee determines, [they] may have a specific way of interpreting a rule so that you have to adapt all of the time.”
So far this week the weather Yokohama has revealed itself to be unpredictable, with bouts of rain on Wednesday being substituted by blue skies and sun on Thursday.
With three days to go before the two sides in Pool A go head-to-head, the one thing which may be said with certainty is that the match will be played from humidity.
“The weather is changing so it’s very hard to understand and that I suppose we shall just need to keep a watch out for it over the next few times,” Murphy explained.
“two weeks ago it seemed like it was going to be the rain shower we have ever seen and it’s saying it’ll be dry so we’ll only need to wait and see.”
Ireland moved from their training base in Chiba on Wednesday and will train again on Friday before head coach Joe Schmidt announces his group choice.
Scottish assistant coach Mike Blair revealed his side have drenched balls in pulp and pulp in an effort to prepare the players for the conditions on Sunday as part of their build-up.
“We have tried a couple of items during pre-season,” explained Murphy.
“Since we’ve been around here we have ever been training from the wet so we have not needed to worry too much about that.
“Your Own gameplan will adapt, that’s exactly what these guys are there for.
“They’ve got loads of experience playing all different types of conditions and they will select the plays and select the areas of the park which we want to play based on what happens on this day”
Ireland have won the past two meetings between both sides, with their most recent success.
Rory McIlroy says whenever or wherever it is played, he’ll compete in next season’s Irish Open.
