Sweden will pose an early test for Wales as Lewis and his fellow coaches prepare for the forthcoming Six Nations Championship and then the World Cup which will be staged in England.
The Swedes have also qualified for the World Cup where they have been grouped with France, Canada and Scotland whereas Wales face the daunting prospect of taking on New Zealand along with Australia and South Africa.
"We're looking forward to the game. We've not played at Swansea before so that will be a new experience for the players," said Lewis. "They have been working hard as a group since July and I'm hoping they can transfer a number of facets from the training pitch onto the field.
"There's no doubt that just like in the men's game, the ability to manage the contact area is vitally important. We have to be clinical in that area."
He added Wales have applied new structures in attack while also incorporating a new defence system so the encounter against Sweden comes at an ideal time for the Welsh side which will be led out once again by Mel Berry.
Lewis is also keen that his side maintain a level of intensity which will be required for bigger challenges which lie ahead.
The World Cup may not be until August 2010, but the Welsh coach is already thinking of the bigger picture by giving hooker Becky Newton, fly-half Elinor Snowsill and winger Caryl James their international bows while another newcomer, backrower Lisa Newton, starts from the bench.
