The training squad will then embark on two separate and bespoke training camps in Spala, Poland from 2nd July to 11th July and from 18th July to 26th July, with players again selected for these camps based on their individual training requirements.
There was a strong Scarlets influence on the Wales V Barbarians game this weekend, with George North and Morgan Stoddart both continuing the sharp form they displayed at the end of the season for their region. There were tries for both the Scarlets backs - with North grabbing the game's opening try - his third try in five appearances with Stephen Jones added the points with his boot.
Stoddart helped Wales regain advantage after the Baa-Baas came back firing to intercept a pass from Cardiff Blues captain Paul Tito, racing 60 metres to score. Jones slotted the conversion to put Wales back in front at 14-12.
Head Coach Nigel Davies said: "It was good to see so many Scarlets involved with Wales at the weekend and performing well. Given that many of them make up core of our developing young players at the region, this is a very positive sign for the future and something that we can rightly be excited about going forward."
Wales head coach Warren Gatland formally presented Stephen Jones with his 100th international match jersey in front of his fellow squad members in the Millennium Stadium home dressing room.
The tradition of the coach or a note-able guest handing out playing jerseys is a strong one in Welsh rugby history, with the likes of Gareth Edwards, Simon Weston, Rhodri Morgan and the late, great, Ray Gravell having all been called on to fullfil the task in recent times.
It is something that is still part of the ceremony of Barbarians rugby and the Wales coaching team thought it only fitting that they highlight a landmark moment for such an integral member of their squad in this way.
"We took a brief moment out from preparations before our captain's run at the Millennium Stadium just to mark the occasion of the 100th cap of a player who has been a magnificent servant to the Welsh game, not just for this coaching team but for entirety of his career to date," said Wales team manager Alan Phillips.
"Stephen deserves all the plaudits he will get and more, he is the model player, a gentleman off the pitch and selfless on it, the whole squad is extremely proud of him and what he has achieved and we also know he has so much more to give yet."
Training will begin in earnest for many of those named at the WRU National Centre of Excellence, the Vale Resort, Hensol in the next two weeks.
Gatland's final squad selection for 2011 RWC will be announced on Monday 22nd August, with the squad due to fly out to New Zealand on Wednesday 31st August.
