FIJIANA rugby 7s coach Iliesa Tanivula said playing at the Central Coast 7s in Australia would be a huge exposure for the national players.

The national women's side is confirmed to participate at the Fitness First-sponsored tournament.

The organisers revealed that other teams such as Australia, Canada, Tribe, Sunnybank, Sydney Fijian Ranadi, Bay of Plenty ACT Brumbies, Melbourne City and Rockdale are the other teams competing in at the event which will be held on October 25 and 26.

"I guess it is a good exposure for the girls," Tanivula said.

"We got some tournaments coming up so playing at the CC7s will give the girls more game time as we continue with the development of women's rugby."

Tanivula said the players had been given off-season training programs building up to the sevens season.

Meanwhile in the men's competition, four Fijian clubs have registered to compete at the event.

Qauia-based Red Rock rugby 7s and the Yamacia side from Navosa are seeded in the top two. Daveta from Nadroga and Nabua are the other two Fijian clubs.

Other top contenders in the men's competition include teams such as Wellington, Borneo from Malaysia, champion Australian sevens club, Sunnybank, Tiger Rugby from the United States and New Zealand's Rangataua rugby club.
