FIJI Bitter Nawaka 7s defending champion Westfield Dragons will be given a good run for their money when defending the title in next weekend's tournament.
The side will face top 7s teams aiming for the $10,000 prizemoney.
Organiser Mataiasi Nabau confirmed top teams from Suva, Nadroga, Lautoka and Nadi would battle for the top award.
Highly rated teams such as Yamacia, Wardens, Police, Tabadamu, Hideaway Hurricanes, Nawaka, Nabua, Army, Red Rock and Natabua have secured their spots.
Nabau said national Vodafone 7s coach Ben Ryan would also be at the two-day meet.
"The presence of Ben Ryan will inspire all players to deliver their very best and this will make the tournament tough."
Nabau said Westfield had been training for the past few days and wanted to retain the title they won last year.
Nabau said 43 teams had paid their registration fees and last minute payments should be made by this afternoon.
"All teams wanting to pay can deposit their money into the Nawaka BSP account 7554768."
He said arrangements were being made to have a one-minute silence before the final as a tribute to former Nadi and Fiji rep Jona Qoro Naresia who was laid to rest yesterday.
