After the thrills of Las Vegas, the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series moves on to Vancouver and, with the draw now complete, there will undoubtedly be a number of closely fought pools to enjoy.

USA Sevens winners South Africa will top Pool A but will not have an easy run through to the Cup quarter-finals as a tricky group awaits them on the west coast of Canada.

Former England Sevens player Rob Vickerman commented on the pool draw: “Pool A is a tasty one with South Africa and England but also Kenya as a team that can create some upsets. They often seem to play well against England, in particular, so that will be a match to look out for.”
