Cape Town - The pools have been drawn for the penultimate round of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Glasgow, with England heading Pool A after winning in Tokyo.

According to the World Rugby website, after claiming a first title in more than two years, England are top seeds and head Pool A, while runners-up South Africa, third-placed Fiji and fourth semi-finalists Canada lead the remaining pools.

England will face France, Australia - the side they climbed above in the standings after victory in Tokyo to occupy the fourth spot in the race for Olympic qualification - and the 2015/16 series' new core side, Russia, in Pool A.

Current series leaders South Africa face third-ranked New Zealand, Samoa and Kenya in Pool B at the Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow.

Fiji, four points behind the Blitzbokke in the standings with two rounds remaining, will face hosts Scotland, Wales and Portugal in Pool C, while Canada await Japan, USA and Argentina in Pool D. 

The Glasgow Sevens, Round 8 of the HSBC Sevens World Series, will take place from May 9-10.
