London 7s Draw
May 1, 2002

England have been drawn against Samoa, Canada and Spain in the group stages of this month's Emirates Airline London Sevens at Twickenham.

The Samoa clash will end day one of the event - on May 24/25 - with pool A opponents New Zealand and Australia facing each other immediately prior to that game.

"All the groups will be very tough at Twickenham, and we will have to work hard to progress to the quarter-finals," said England sevens manager Joe Lydon.

"We had around 10,000 at the event last year, and we're confident that number will be left far behind by what we expect to be a very supportive crowd.

"The fans will be able to see the best of sevens rugby from around the world, and I hope that they do all they can to generate a superb atmosphere as we bid to improve our fourth-place ranking."

New Zealand have already secured this season's World Sevens Series title with victory in last weekend's Malaysia 7s tournament.
