Sevens World Cup winner Craig Hill will be looking to add to his haul of silverware on Saturday at the annual Men of Gwent Sevens (Rodney Parade, 12 midday)
Hill captained Newport RFC to victory last season in the tournament and his side are aiming to retain their title on Saturday.
"We are definitely looking to retain the title this year. We set the standard at last season's tournament and we certainly want to build on that," said Hill.
In addition to the series of exciting sevens matches, Saturday will also feature a family fun day with bouncy castles, face painting and rugby activities.
And with the whole Dragons team in attendance at Rodney Parade as well as players from the Celtic Crusaders rugby league team, it promises to be an exciting day out for all the family.
The Welsh sevens star continued: "The Men of Gwent day is a really enjoyable day of rugby. This tournament is a great opportunity to bring Gwent rugby-lovers together. It's a chance to see new signings and returning players in action for the first time and is generally a great day out.
"We've got a strong team this season with lots of class. We have great wingers in Mikey Poole and Ryan Owen and it'll be great to see the new boys Alex Cuthbert, who's on trial with us from Hartbury College and David James, who has joined us from Blackwood show what they've got. There's no place to hide in sevens so it will be a great chance to see what people are made of."
Despite expecting a strong performance from Newport, Hill reckons the competition on Saturday is going to be fierce. And the title, he believes, could be anybody's.
"In terms of favourites for the tournament, I know that we're very keen to retain the title but it's a short and fast game so anything can happen."
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.
Wales skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
