London Wasps will take part in the 2013 J.P. Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Series once again this summer.

Wasps are pitted in Pool C of the tournament where they will face Harlequins, London Irish, and Saracens on Saturday, August 3 at Allianz Park

The Series, which is now in its fourth year, will kick off at Gloucester’s Kingsholm Stadium on Thursday 1 August, culminating in another high-octane Final at Bath’s Recreation Ground on Friday 9 August.

The competition is split into three qualifying legs, and a Final, contested by all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs.

Pool A sees Gloucester Rugby host Bath Rugby, Exeter Chiefs, and Worcester Warriors on Thursday 1 August.

Twenty four hours later Pool B features Northampton Saints, Leicester Tigers, London Welsh, and Sale Sharks at Franklin’s Gardens.

Completing the pool stages on Saturday 2 August at Saracens’ Allianz Park; Harlequins, holders London Irish and London Wasps will take on the hosts for a place in the Final in Pool C.

The three pool stages and the final will be the first rugby union covered live on the new BT Sport channels.

Former Wasps captain Lawrence Dallaglio has signed with BT Sport to become its leading rugby union expert and he can’t wait for the new J.P. Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Series to kick off.

Back in 1993 Dallaglio was a member of the successful England team that won the Sevens World Cup at Murrayfield.

He said: “I loved my time playing Sevens so fully understand how important it can be in the development of young players, the J.P. Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Series has established itself in the rugby calendar and I expect the 2013 event to be a great showcase for Sevens. Rugby’s admission into the Olympic Games, in Rio in 2016, will take the sport on to a new level and increase its global appeal.”
