THIS Saturday will mark the 41st Kiama Rugby Sevens on both Chittick and Showground ovals, featuring 56 teams.
This year will include an increase in the number of quality entries.
All the Sydney first grade sides will be represented along with top Brisbane team, Sunnybank.
Overseas competitors will include Ha'ateiho Spartans and Tupou College from Tonga, Vuda Blues from Fiji, West Roosters from Auckland and a side from the Philippines.
The competition has not lost touch with its grassroots approach. Included will be 14 country sides from as far away as Cobar, Jindabyne, Dubbo and Wagga.
Kiama will be represented by two sides - a development and grade outfit.
Entries for this year were at a premium and unfortunately many clubs missed out on inclusion.
The women's competition will feature eight sides vying for the trophy; two from Queensland, ACT Brumbies and the Shandong Women's team from China.
As Sevens is now in the Commonwealth Games and Olympics, most countries are represented.
Spectators can look forward to an action-packed day of top-quality rugby from 8.30am. The competition typically features some great upsets, as well as much entertainment value.
