Samoa and Tonga finished fourth and fifth respectively and, as the second and third highest-placed sides not already qualified, won entry to the 2020 Final Olympic Qualifier.
Tonga and Papua New Guinea, as the two highest-placed sides without core status on the World Rugby Sevens Series, won entry to the 2020 Hong Kong Sevens qualifying tournament for the 2020–21 World Sevens Series.

The remaining teams were seeded into Pool B and Pool C.
