12:40pm - Australian men draw Pool B

The Australian Men's Sevens squad have drawn Pool B, putting them up against England, Samoa and Jamaica.

Australia were always slated for a tough run through the pools as they were not one of the top four seeds but they have avoided big guns South Africa and New Zealand, which is a major positive.

Samoa are one of the dark horses of the tournament, though, and were one of the stronger nations from that particular band.
