DRAGONS wing/full-back Hallam Amos is set for a shock call-up to the Wales squad for the Commonwealth Games sevens.

The 23-year-old from Cross Ash has been lined up to provide some added star quality for the tournament in Gold Coast, Australia in April  while Dragons openside James Benjamin, a regular on the sevens circuit last season, is also set to feature.

Lions flanker Justin Tipuric was also in the frame but is now expected to remain with the Ospreys for their run-in.

Amos has won 15 senior caps and although he has never played international sevens and doesn’t possess the flat-out speed of specialists, his fast feet, power and lines of running would make him an interesting selection.

The Dragons ace enjoyed a superb autumn campaign for Warren Gatland’s side when he played in all four Tests and scored tries against Australia and Georgia.

However, he suffered an ankle injury against Cardiff Blues at Rodney Parade on Boxing Day that meant he fell down the international pecking order for the back three and he has not featured in the Six Nations.

Amos was released for game time in the Guinness PRO14 against Glasgow (when he was man of the match), Benetton and Edinburgh.

Selection for the Commonwealth Games would mean the full-back missing the away Italian double-header with Benetton and Zebre. He could return for the season finale against the Scarlets at Judgement Day.

Wales have been drawn against world number two nation Fiji, Uganda and Sri Lanka in the group stages on Saturday, April 14 with the knockout stages the following day.
