Looks like swift progress. Great work guys!

Thanks! We appreciate the encouragement.


We really do have an impressive committee of dedicated Rugby League lovers from many countries.


The next couple of months will be big for us.


I still need to decide if I am going to play 9s, tag or event manage. We can't have everyone playing! Haha

HKRL Residents XIII to tour the Philippines


There will be more on the line than just silverware on offer at this year’s Hong Kong Nines tournament, with the event to give players the opportunity to showcase their talent and potential secure a spot on the HKRL Residents XIII tour of the Philippines.

The tour, which will take place in November, will see the HKRL Residents XIII visit Manilla in the Philippines to play against the Manilla Storm.

The Manilla Storm are one of the domestic Rugby League teams in the Philippines and have been selected by the PNRL to be the Resident XIII’s opponents.

The tour match will take place on Southern Plains Field in Alabang on November 7.

The HKRL will announce further details around the tour, including how interested players can join the tour at a later date

The HKRL Residents XIII is a representative team made up of open-age players who are current residents of Hong Kong and playing Rugby League. The team is not the international representative team of Hong Kong (Hong Kong Thunder) and is designed to allow a wider mix of players to have the opportunity to not only represent their region, but also help spread the Rugby League message throughout Asia.

Great progress so far. I know a couple of schools have started playing rugby league, but beyond that, have you had much interest from natives? Or is it all ex-pats for now? Keep up the good work! 


We've been delighted with the level of local interest so far, especially from touch players. We hope to bring them in and we all place great important on it. Let's see how things pan out. But we are confident. We have had several locals down at our training sessions.

Hong Kong’s inaugural Mixed Tag Rugby League Challenge is set to take place at King’s Park, Kowloon as part of the Festival of Rugby League that will take place on Wednesday, October 21.

Running in parallel to the Hong Kong Rugby League Nines, the Mixed Tag Rugby League Challenge will feature up to six teams from around the Hong Kong region, battling it out to declare the inaugural Tag Rugby League champions.

Tag Rugby League is a low-contact version of Rugby League, which features six players on the field at any one time. Players wear Velcro tags around their waist upon which at least one needs to be removed to constitute a ‘tackle’.

Just like Tackle Rugby League, players are allowed six plays to try and score or attempt to move the ball as far down the field as possible. Players are also allowed to kick, making Tag Rugby League very similar in style to the Tackle version of the code.

For the HKRL Mixed Tag Rugby League Challenge all competing teams must have a minimum of two girls on the field at any one time.

The HKRL is currently taking submissions for players or teams wishing to take part in the inaugural Mixed Tag Rugby League Challenge.

Entry fee for any team looking to enter the tournament is HKD $350.00.

Kick off for the tournament is from 9:00am.

If you are interested in entering a team, nominating yourself to play or want to find out more, please email getinvolved@hongkongrugbyleague.com
