 Dubai Sevens: Where to watch on TV
Tall order: England are the defending champions in Dubai but face a tough test in the pool stages after slipping up at round one in Australia

After a six-week break the HSBC Sevens World Series 2012/13 gets back underway this weekend with round two, the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, on 30 November - 1 December.

England line up as defending Dubai champions, and call in John Brake as a last-minute replacement for Ollie Phillips. Ben Ryan's side faces a tough test on day one after slipping up in the Gold Coast last time out and kick off with a pool match against South Africa.

Reigning Series champions New Zealand arrive in Dubai as second seeds after losing the Gold Coast final to Fiji. Amazingly, the Fijians are looking to win the Dubai title for the first time since 1998, and have made seven changes to the side that won last month in Australia.

So where in the world can you watch the Sevens from Dubai?
