SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: Wales Sevens coach Gareth Williams has included four new players for the first leg of the 2016/2017 Sevens World Series in Dubai.

The four new names are Stef Andrews , Matthew Owen, Jared Rosser  and Tom Williams. The coach has also opted for two co-captains in Olympic silver medallist Sam Cross and fellow Team GB squad member Luke Treharne.

A strong Pool A in this year’s opening edition of the tournament sees Wales drawn on Friday, December 2 with Argentina, Olympic champions Fiji, and Canada.

Wales’ final act of last season’s World Rugby Sevens Series was a 24-19 victory against Australia in the Bowl final at Twickenham.
 
"We are excited with the twelve players selected for Dubai," said Williams. "Our seven available core players are included and their knowledge of the World Rugby Sevens Series will be invaluable for the four regional players and the one Principality Premiership player joining them.
 
"There is huge potential in the group, which is very exciting. The challenge is to accelerate their collective cohesion, having had a relatively short space of time together in preparation. The match scenarios we’ve experienced in pre-season against Ireland and England have helped in that regard. It is going to be a fantastic contest in a tough group, but one we are really looking forward to getting stuck into," he added.

Wales: Stef Andrews, Sam Cross, Ethan Davies, Lloyd Evans, Owen Jenkins, Matthew Owen, Ben Roach, Jared Rosser, Adam Thomas, Luke Treharne, Morgan Williams, Tom Williams.
