The IRB has confirmed the pool draw for round five of the HSBC Sevens World Series, the USA Sevens in Las Vegas, USA on 8-10 February 2013.

The draw was made live on television before the Cup final of the Hertz Sevens in Wellington, the fourth round of the 2012/13 season, which was won by England in dramatic fashion after they came from behind to beat Kenya.
