Cape Town - The pools and schedule for this weekend’s final round of the 2016/17 World Rugby Sevens Series have been announced.

South Africa - series winners and champions in Paris - are top seeds in a tricky Pool A alongside USA, Wales and Kenya.

Pool B is topped by last year's London champions, Scotland, who will face France, Argentina and Russia on day one at Twickenham.

In Pool C, New Zealand will play Fiji, Canada and Japan while in Pool D, hosts England will play Samoa, Australia and Spain.

Following their win at the Paris Sevens, the Blitzboks have an unassailable lead in the 2016/17 World Rugby Sevens Series standings.

They will be crowned champions this weekend when the series concludes with the London Sevens at Twickenham.
