England had beaten Scotland en route to the Wellington Sevens title, only for Colin Gregor's to gain revenge in Las Vegas last time out. The auld rivals also went head-to-head at the Gold Coast Sevens at the start of the season.
There will be another familiar face from Las Vegas in the shape of Portugal, while Samoa make up the pool.
Wales have been handed a tough-looking draw after they were grouped with Las Vegas champions South Africa, Argentina and Australia.
