A four day turnaround between Scotland's Pool B game's against Japan and USA, has meant the Scots having to optimise their recovery schedule.
One of the things which Vern Cotter's side have had to curb their intake of has been caffeine.
Speaking to the Press Association, Scotland backrow Alasdair Strokosch said that even the team's 'coffee monsters' have managed to cut their caffeine consumption down to three cups per day.
We travelled straight after Wednesday's game. The non-playing staff went in the mini-bus so the rest of the boys could have as much room as possible.
There's been a whole host of recovery sessions in the pool and also with ice and heat. Lots of massage too. The guys have done a great job.
With sleep being one of the most important things we have also been limited to three cups of coffee a day and all before 3pm to allow us to get a full eight or 10 hours of sleep a night.
There's a few coffee monsters in the team but they have managed to rein it in for a few days.
