Wales have released their 21-man squad from which they will select their team to face France at The Glyndwr University Racecourse Stadium on Saturday.
There are four players from each of Wales’ professional clubs, South Wales Scorpions and North Wales Crusaders.
Two of the Crusaders who are two of the nine potential debutants in the squad, are Wrexham-born brothers Owain and Iwan Brown, both former Wales Student internationals who will hope to make their full test debuts on home turf.
Wales are however unable to call on their Australian-based players Andrew Gay, Lee Williams, Ian Webster, Tyson Frizell, Matt Seamark and Neil Budworth but they will all potentially return for the end of season games.
“We’ll have a squad with a mixture of youth and experience. There will be a few debutants who are supported by some old hands.
“This match against France is an essential part of our preparations for the 2013 World Cup which we are jointly hosting here in Wales. It will enable us to showcase the Welsh talent that we have in both Super League and those who are coming through the ranks at various levels of the game.
"The French game will be a big test for our young side against an experienced French outfit and it will give us a good viewpoint as to how far we’ve progressed as a nation over the last two years.
Lee Briers, who has now joined the Wales’ coaching staff, has since quit the international game after scoring 100 points for his country, while Mark Lennon, Chris Beasley and Ian Watson also retired from Wales with honour after last year’s tournament.
