Wales Sevens squad member Adam Field has been named in the London Welsh squad for Singapore.
Fresh from the club's Greene King IPA Championship success, London Welsh will be targeting more silverware at the inaugural Rugby World Club 10s in Singapore this weekend.
The Exiles will battle it out over two days with the likes of The Blues, ACT Brumbies, Biarritz Olympique and Cardiff Blues at the new National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub in a series of fast-paced, pulsating 20-minute rugby matches.
Saturday will stage all 12 pool matches, with a further 12 knockout matches scheduled for Sunday.
London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell, said: "It's fantastic to see the name of London Welsh once again up alongside some of the great names in world club rugby.
"The tournament is a great opportunity for the club to pit itself against two leading Super 15 sides in ACT Brumbies and Auckland Blues. The Brumbies were last year's Super 15s finalists and are the current World Sevens Club champions, having beaten the Auckland Blues in last year's final, and then you've got Biarritz and Cardiff Blues."
Welsh's squad for the tournament is an exciting mix. James Lewis, who captain's the side, Ollie Stedman, Nathan Trevett and Ben West will be familiar names to Welsh supporters, while some of the club's new signings for next season's Aviva Premiership campaign will also be on display - Chris Elder, Cameron Goodhue, Paul Rowley and Nathan Taylor.
