Scott Quinnell is troulbled by the same knee that he hurt last summer in Australia and will miss Saturday's match against Scotland at the Millennium Stadium.
"It is the same knee, but it is a new injury," said Quinnell. "I just need a few weeks rest before the Heineken Cup semi-final for Llanelli against Leicester."
However, there was good news for Wales as Llanelli fly half Stephen Jones came through his club's Principality Cup quarter-final and also Cardiff centre Jamie Robinson was back in action in another quarter-final.
Both Robinson and his brother Nicky, along with Mark Taylor (Swansea) and Ian Gough (Newport) were in training with Wales over the weekend and Nathan Budgett (Bridgend) is hoping to be fit after limping off against LLanelli at half-time last Saturday.
Quinnell was the only one of the 22 players of the squad beaten by England at Twickenham who did not train.
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.
Wales skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
