SOME of our top 7s teams will feature in the Nakelo Rugby Development 7s tournament which starts today at the Nakelo District School ground in Tailevu.

Teams like Wardens, Red Rock, Police, Nausori and Fiji Bitter Mokani 7s champs Nasolo Young Boys will be taking part in the two-day tournament.

Coastal Rental Ratu Filise, Lomaiviti Barbarians and Nabua are the other well-known sides taking part.

Tournament director Isaia Taka said they were pleased with the response from clubs.

He said the idea behind the tournament was to help with the development of rugby in the village.

Taka said with top teams coming in to participate in their tournament, the development of 7s rugby in Nakelo looked on track.

"We had one tournament earlier this year and this is our last one for the season," he said.

Taka said 24 teams were taking part, four teams grouped in six pools.

The Cup prize money is $2000 while runner-up will get $800.

The tournament starts at 10am.
