World Rugby has confirmed the pool draw for the Tokyo Sevens in Japan, round seven of the HSBC Sevens World Series 2014-15 on 4-5 April, 2015.

After their third win of the season in Hong Kong, Fiji are top seeds and head Pool A, while runners-up New Zealand, third-placed South Africa and the fourth semi-finalist Samoa lead the remaining pools.

The 2014-15 season carries added significance because the top four ranked sides after the ninth and final round in London in May will qualify directly for the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.

Ben Ryan's Fiji were drawn alongside his former charges England, Wales and Hong Kong in Pool A at the Prince Chichibu Memorial Ground in Tokyo.

New Zealand will again face Australia in Pool B along with Scotland and Portugal, the side they drew with in the pool stages in Hong Kong.

Current series leaders South Africa will face USA, Canada and Kenya in Pool C, while Samoa will tackle Argentina, France and host nation Japan in Pool D.
