"The success of the HSBC Sevens World Series and the inclusion of Rugby Sevens in the Olympic Games has attracted a new wave of interest and the time is right for supporters in Wales to get to see the game played by some of our best players.
"Many of the Wales Sevens squad are Premiership players and they regularly face the best teams in the world game.
"Sevens is an area of rugby where some of our most skilful players can develop their talents and create some incredible plays.
"You only have to look at our current senior international squad to see how important sevens is for player development.
"The likes of Alex Cuthbert, Justin Tipuric, Lloyd Williams, James Hook, Jamie Roberts and Aaron Shingler have all benefitted from international sevens as a key part of their rugby development.
