LONDON Welsh will face Wasps, Pontypridd and Henley Hawks in their pre-season fixtures, the club confirmed today.

All matches will be away, meaning that the Exiles will not play at the Kassam Stadium until the Aviva Premiership season gets underway in September.

As previously reported, Welsh visit Henley’s Dry Leas ground on Saturday, August 9.

This will be followed by trips to Wasps on Sunday August 17 and Pontypridd on Saturday, August 23.

Welsh will learn their Premiership fixtures at the official launch on Friday.
