The next leg of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens series heads to Los Angeles in early March.

Kenya’s Shujaa have been booked in Group B of the meet where they will meet African rivals South Africa, Canada, and Ireland.

Shujaa will be buoyed by their victory against the Blitzbok in the Hamilton Sevens, their first since 2015 in Cape Town when they lock horns in LA.

Unlike New Zealand and Australian legs of the World Series, the Los Angeles event will be a men’s only affair and will, therefore, revert to the format where the top two teams in each pool qualify for the quarterfinals.

LA 7s Draw:
Pool A: Fiji, Argentina, France, Korea
Pool B: South Africa, Kenya, Ireland, Canada
Pool C: USA, Australia, Scotland, Samoa
Pool D: England, New Zealand, Wales, Spain
