Four Kempsey sides will contest for the title at the Crescent Head Rugby Sevens held this Saturday February 1.
A Kempsey Cannonballs women's side will be one of the 12 sides competing for the $2,000 first place prize while three Kempsey outfits will look to best 18 other teams to claim the $2,500 first prize in the men's competition.
The Kempsey Cannonballs will be joined by the Kempsey Indigenous side coached by Jared Fuller and the Kempsey Dingbats coached by Jesse Ball in the men's division.
Crescent Head Rugby Sevens organiser Brad Taylor said there will be a good mix of local and travelling teams competing.
"There are teams from Sydney, Newcastle, and a women's team from Brisbane travelling to compete on the day while all the locals sides will be represented too, which is great," Taylor told the Argus.
The rugby sevens tournament will begin in pool stages, with each team playing either two or three pool games.
The top side in each pool will advance to the cup finals, the second placed team will compete for the plate finals while the third placed side will enter the bowl finals.
Taylor is particularly excited about the growth of women's involvement in rugby union.
"We are still at the infant stage of women playing rugby union on the Mid North Coast but already the players are getting better and the interest is growing," Taylor said.
"We have had three seasons of entering a women's team in the local competition and we have more fresh faces ready to participate in the rugby sevens tournament and the weekly competition this season."
The rugby action is scheduled to start at 8am with finals to begin around 4pm for a 6pm finish.
Taylor encourages locals to make the trip to Crescent Head for an exhilarating day of rugby.
"The weather forecast predicts dry conditions so there will be entertaining and fast paced rugby on display all day," Taylor said.
"It's a $5 entry, we have a canteen and alcohol available and there is plenty of parking at the ground."
The final draw will be released later this week and applications remain open until this Friday.
