New Wales Women’s manager Gemma Grainger has embraced a difficult start to her reign with home matches against Canada and Denmark.
Wales, ranked 31st in the world, have opted to play tough 2023 World Cup qualifying warm-up games against opponents residing in the top 15.
Canada, who are Grainger’s first opponents in Cardiff on Friday, are ranked eighth, while Tuesday’s visitors Denmark are 14th.
Grainger said: “If you want to be the best you’ve got to play the best. In terms of our mentality we will come out of these 10 days knowing what we need to do.
“These two opponents give us the opportunity to find out what we need to know, so we can continue to learn as a team.
“It shouldn’t be easy and we don’t want it to be easy. The types of opposition we are playing will really put us in a position to be able to reflect and take the best learning we can.”
