Wales have the chance to avenge their 15-a-side loss to the All Blacks loss to the All Blacks when they take on New Zealand at the Dubai Sevens.
Wales lost 33-10 at the Millennium Stadium and they face an equally difficult encounter against the New Zealand Sevens team.
Wales will also face Argentina and Russia in the opening day of the second leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.
And head coach Paul John said: "New Zealand are the top seed in Dubai but Argentina is also a massive game and Russia are improve all the time.
"Every pool is difficult now in the HSBC World Series but we've prepared well as a squad and held an extremely useful and competitive trial session between squad players last week.
"Alex Webber, who has been playing with Ystrad Rhondda in Division One East stood out, as did Cory Allen who have both made it into the squad for the first time. Jason Harries is also set to win his first cap for Wales having performed well in training, while Ifan Evans returns to the squad bringing more strength in depth."
Wales Sevens: Ifan Evans, James Davies, Adam Thomas, Richie Pugh, Jason Harries, Lee Williams, Rhys Jones, Will Thomas, Will Price, Rhys Shellard, Cory Allen, Alex Webber.
