Sheedy and Lloyd named in Wales squad for summer tests

Callum Sheedy and Ioan Lloyd have been named in Wayne Pivac's Wales squad for summer tests against Canada and Argentina.

Wales take on Canada at the Principality Stadium on Saturday, July 3rd before back-to-back Tests against Argentina on Saturday, July 10th and Saturday, July 17th.

"We are really looking forward to this summer, getting to work with this squad and the three home tests that we will face," said Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.

"It is great that we are able to select five uncapped players in the squad. It is an opportunity, much like the autumn campaign last year, to get these players into the environment and to expose them to test match preparation and in some cases test match rugby.

"This summer isn't just about the uncapped players it is also about internationals gaining more experience. It is a chance for them to get more starts and appearances under their belt and to step into leadership roles so it is going to be an important period for us.

"We will have a training camp in North Wales before returning to Cardiff for our three tests so it is a great block of time we have together.

"Whilst the Six Nations success is still fresh in many people's memories it is important we continue to build both depth and our game as we continue to the RWC 2023."
