World Rugby released the pools and match schedule last night for the anticipated London Sevens later this month.
The Fiji Airways Men’s 7s side will begin their London 7s title defence against Samoa.
The national side will then play France and Kenya in Pool B.
Pool A sees reigning series champions South Africa face Argentina, Canada and Japan.
Hosts England are drawn with New Zealand, Scotland and Ireland in Pool C, while current series leaders USA will take on Australia, Spain and Wales in Pool D.
While the race for the series title is nearing its climax, Olympic qualification is also at stake as the top four teams in the 2019 series will confirm their place at Tokyo 2020 alongside host nation Japan.
With just 24 points separating series leaders USA from fourth placed South Africa, the scene is set for a thrilling weekend of sevens action in London.
The London 7s will be held from the 25th to the 27th of this month.
