Fri, 13 Oct 2017 09:58

DUBAI SEVENS SPOTLIGHT: Series champions South Africa's Pool fixtures make retaining their title a little easier when the series gets underway in Dubai on November 30 to  December 2.

The Blitzboks were drawn in Pool A alongside Canada, Kenya and invitational team Uganda. Pool B has a European feel to it as England meet Scotland, France and the newly promoted Spain.

The more difficult groupings seemed to be Pool C and Pool D.

Olympic champions Fiji are drawn in Pool C with Australia, Wales and Japan while New Zealand, USA, Argentina and Samoa make up Pool D.  

Last season saw record-breaking fan figures for the World Rugby Sevens Series, after another compelling season on and off the field.   

The 2016-17 series, the first after rugby sevens’ Olympic Games debut at Rio, saw the total attendance increase by almost 10 percent, with sevens social media reaching 120 million across multiple languages as the series broadcast to a global TV audience in more than 100 countries.
