Coach Paul John will take a new-look Wales Sevens squad to Lyon this weekend in the first of four European 'Grand Prix' Sevens tournaments.

Wales finished seventh in the International Rugby Board Sevens World Series and John is now focused on developing the next wave of players.

Tournaments in Moscow, Barcelona and Bucharest follow this opener in France and next month's Middlesex Sevens.

"These are high quality tournaments," said Welsh head coach John.

"With the likes of England, Portugal, France, Spain and Russia involved, they will give players an insight into international Sevens rugby."

Wales Sevens squad: Owen Williams (Pontypridd), Calum Thomas (Pontypridd), Rory Watts Jones (Cardiff), Steve Taylor (Cardiff), Sam Lewis (Swansea), Luke Williams (unattached), Justin James (Llanelli), Lee Williams (Scarlets), Warren Davies (Tonmawr), Will Price (Aberavon), Will Jones (Cardiff), Elliot Frewen (Tonmawr)
