After a disappointing outing in Las Vegas last week, Samoa has it all to do better at the Vancouver Sevens in Canada tomorrow.

Ranked 9th, the Sir Gordon Tietjens coached team will be looking for a much better performance.

But they have a tough draw, needing at least two wins from a pool that involves Argentina, Wales and England.

Samoa will play Argentina first at 9.20am tomorrow, followed by England at 12.30 and then Wales at 4pm.

Bronze winners from the Las Vegas tournament Fiji are drawn in Pool C with Kenya, France and Spain.

Series leader South Africa will face second place New Zealand, Scotland and Russia in Pool D of the Vancouver tournament this weekend.

Samoa still remains at the 9th place after the Las Vegas tournament.
