Wales will be sending men's and women's teams to Glasgow for the first time since 1998 in Kuala Lumpur, with the women's side including Xenna Hughes , the daughter of former Wales football manager Mark Hughes.

12 players will be sent to Glasgow, with former captain Billy Pritchard recalled following several years out - but the squad is without experienced defenders Sara Hale, Rosie Pretorius and Stephanie Williams, who have all been ruled out through injury.
The team will be managed by head coach Laura Williams, who took over following the sacking of former head coach Melissa Hyndman after a disciplinary investigation.

Wales will be without the current and former world triathlon champions for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Current world champion Non Stanford had been originally selected, but injury has ruled her out of competition. She has since been replaced by Carol Bridge, a 29-year-old accident and emergency nurse.
The team suffered a further blow when Helen Jenkins, 2008 and 2011 ITU World Champion, was also ruled out of the Games because of a foot injury.
Despite injuries to Stanford and Jenkins there was no place for Ironman world champion Leanda Cave, with Holly Lawrence taking the third women's spot.
Welsh weightlifter Michaela Breeze, who has won two gold and three silver medals at the Commonwealth Games, says Wales can win at least two weightlifting medals in Glasgow.
The 34 year-old says the sport is "on the up" in Wales and has no doubts over what the team should be aiming for in Glasgow.
Also selected are British champion Gareth Evans and 20 year-old Darius Jokarzadeh from Cardiff, who is returning from playing American football in Pennsylvania to compete at the Games.
