GLASGOW 2014 has confirmed the match schedule for the Rugby Sevens competition at this summer's Commonwealth Games.

Reigning champions New Zealand, who have won all four Commonwealth gold medals to date, will face Canada in the opening match of the competition on Sunday while Delhi finalists Australia take on Sri Lanka.

Home nations Scotland, England and Wales kick off their campaigns later in the morning session against New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Malaysia respectively.

A notable change from the pools released in January is the replacement of Nigeria with Barbados. Glasgow 2014 can confirm that the Nigerian Olympic Committee have officially declined their invitation to compete in this year's games.

As the first reserve team nomination by the International Rugby Board, Barbados will replace Nigeria and join New Zealand, Canada and Scotland in Pool A.
