The pools for the USA 7s in Las Vegas have been set following the draw held during the Cel C Nelson Mandela Bay 7s in South Africa.

In Pool B, World Series leaders New Zealand have to contend with Oceanic rivals Fiji and Australia, as well as a very tough Scotland team.

Pool C features Samoa, Portugal, and England, as well as the South American qualifier, Uruguay. And in Pool D, Argentina heads up a pool that includes France, Spain, and the USA.

It's a very winnable pool for the Eagles in their home tournament.

The USA 7s will be held January 24-26, with pool play starting on Friday night, Jan 24, at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. Two pool games and the quarterfinals will be held on Saturday, and then the semis and finals will be held on Sunday.
