IRB confirms draw for Las Vegas



The IRB has confirmed the pool draw for round five of the HSBC Sevens World Series, the USA Sevens in Las Vegas on 8-10 February.

The draw was made live on television before the Cup final of the Hertz Sevens in Wellington, the fourth round of the 2012/13 season, which was won by England in dramatic fashion after they came from behind to beat Kenya.

As winners in Wellington, England head Pool A and play Fiji in their opening match and will also face Scotland and Portugal.

Wellington runners-up Kenya meet South Africa, whom they beat in the Cup quarterfinals in New Zealand, as well as Canada and regional qualifiers Uruguay, in Pool B.

Pool C consists of series leaders New Zealand, Argentina, France and reigning RWC Sevens champions Wales.

USA Sevens hosts the US Eagles will line up in Pool D alongside Samoa, Australia and Spain.

After four of the nine rounds in the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series, defending champions New Zealand lead the standings on 77 points, ahead of Kenya (56), Samoa (54) and Fiji, France and South Africa (all 51).
