TWO Fijian clubs are the top seed in the 2014 Fitness First Central Coast 7s tournament in Australia next month.

Daveta, which won the inaugural Limerick World Club 7s in Ireland last month, is the top seed in Pool B.

The Sigatoka-based club is placed alongside Tribe 7s (Australia), NZ Four Nations (New Zealand) and Manly (Australia).

Yamacia leads Pool C which has Brazil, Sunnybank (Australia) and Tiger Rugby (USA).

The other two local clubs competing in the men's Cup competition are Red Rock and Nabua.

Lote Rasiga's Red Rock is second best to Wellington (NZ) in Pool A. The other teams in that pool are Te Whanau (Australia) and Stars Rugby (USA).

Nabua is the least seeded team in Pool D which has Rangataua (NZ), Borneo Eagles (Malaysia) and Warringah (Australia).

Meanwhile, Telecom Fijiana will compete in the women's competition.

The Iliesa Tanivula-coached side is the top seed in Pool C which also has Rugirl 7 (Japan), ACT Brumbies and CCAS.

The other top teams taking part in the women's competition include Australia, Canada, Brazil and NZ Wasps.

Members of the Nabua Rugby Club performed a traditional Fijian kava ceremony at the tournament's official launch last Saturday.

New Zealand 7s coach Gordon Tietjens will be the special guest in the tournament.

The winners from the Central Coast 7s will earn an automatic entry to the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s in November.
