Warren Gatland: Wales is ready to get down to business for Rugby World Cup

Warren Gatland says Wales' focus is on "competition rugby" as they continue counting down to their World Cup opener against Georgia.

Gatland's team are set to go into that September 23 encounter without locks Adam Beard and Cory Hill.

Beard is recovering from having his appendix removed and hopes to join the squad in Japan next week, while Hill is continuing rehabilitation following a stress fracture in his leg.

A pivotal Pool D clash against Australia six days after the Georgia game is the likely target for both players.
