DRAW: Sevens World Series leaders South Africa will face the only team that has beaten them so far this season, England, in the pool stages in Sydney.

World Rugby has announced the pools for the fourth round of the Sevens World Series in Sydney next weekend.

The draw for the next stop on the series was made at the end of the Wellington leg - which was won by South Africa, who beat Fiji 26-5 in the Final of Rond Three in Wellington.

The BlitzBoks are drawn in Pool A with England, Kenya and Japan.

Having gone unbeaten in Round One in Dunai, the BlitzBoks lost to England in the Final in Cape Town - their only loss this season - and then again went unbeaten

Olympic and Sevens Series champions Fiji top Pool B with France, Wales and Samoa.

After an impressive performance in the second round, where they finished with bronze, Scotland will play hosts Australia, New Zealand and invitational team Papua New Guinea.

Canada, who impressed in Wellington, top Pool D and play Argentina, the United States and Russia at the Allianz Stadium next weekend.
