  1. PNG's Diamond Chiefs have landed in Hong Kong for the Nines.
  2. Rugby League XIII Sports Association - Thailand XIII. The Esarn All Stars representative team are ready for their maiden Hong Kong Rugby League 9s.
  3. We need to do our best to build domestic leagues in home nations. Close to RL heartland, at least compared to the other far flung regions RL is trying to get ahead.
  4. Lots of opportunity in Hong Kong, especially with Australian banks and companies.
  5. I'm actually gonna send over some gear to these guys. They deserve our support and encouragement. Go Broncos!
  6. Great news and that can fit in along side the other Asian RL nations. I really think Vietnam will be a real success if we could organise it getting off the ground.
  7. We are delighted to announce the ICG HKRL 9s 2017 schedule, with six teams set to compete in a round robin group stage before the top two teams compete in the Grand Final decider this Saturday 22nd, at King’s Park. The six teams competing will for the first time ever include teams from overseas competing at the HKRL 9s. The final confirmed team list is; Diamond Chiefs (Papa New Guinea) Esarn All Stars (Thailand) Soceiete Generale Valley RFC Broncos Bloomberg Hong Kong Scottish Reivers HK Hunters Wanchai Warriors Full schedule: http://hongkongrugbyleague.com/blog/2017/04/20/icg-hkrl9s-2017-schedule-announced/
  8. Got all my tickets the first day of release, I'm revved up. Love international footy!
  9. After seeing so many clubs go under in Australia, I feel really bad for anyone losing a club. But this is an opportunity and we should seize it. Origin is in WA in 2019. We should offer something for past members of the Force for any new NRL side. And once we are back over there, we need all clubs and fanbases doing heavy lifting to support the new club. That includes travelling there and talking it up and trying to found supporter groups for each club in WA.
  10. Really pleased with the progress in Thailand, Congratulations!
  11. Bloomberg HK Scottish Reivers to join the HKRL 9s HKRL are delighted to announce that the Bloomberg Hong Kong Scottish Reivers will be joining the HKRL 9s 2017 on April 22nd at King’s Park. The Reivers, who are Hong Kong Scottish Rugby Football Club’s first ever Rugby League team, join the Diamond Chiefs (Papua New Guinea) and Esarn All Stars (Thailand) as the first confirmed entries into this year’s competition that will include overseas teams for the first time ever. Hong Kong Scottish was formed in April 2011 to be the home of the Scottish rugby community in Hong Kong and are a sister club of the historic London Scottish. They made their first ever appearance at the Melrose 7s and the club has grown impressively since – boasting more than 500 members (of whom almost 300 are playing members). In addition to rugby union, the club has teams that compete in football, netball, basketball and lacrosse, with the Reivers being the newest addition to the club’s sporting roster. The new Reivers side will have some substantial League experience already, with several players having already played in the HKRL 9s, the Side of Origin clash, the Battle of the Hemispheres and the HK Residents XIII tours in the past. ‘We’re very happy to have been able to set up a Rugby League side at Hong Kong Scottish. There is a lot of appetite from our players to play in the 9s and future HKRL competitions. There are quite a few who have played in previous HKRL fixtures and tournaments in past couple years already and we see it is as a great opportunity to develop and grow the club in another sport’, team manager Dan McCray told us. He also provided some insight into the choice of name for HK Scottish’s latest team and the style of play they will be looking to implement. ‘We’re named after the infamous cavalry raiders of the border country because we hope to embody the same swift and vicious attacking style that our name namesakes had in the past. HKRL 9s will be taking place at King’s Park, April 22nd. Players, volunteers or sponsors interested in participating are welcome to message us directly on Facebook or email us at info@hongkongrugbyleague.com.

  13. Hong Kong Rugby League now has an online store. http://hongkongrugbyleague.com/shop/
  14. Surely at some stage the NRL needs to tackle SA. We can do it...
  15. And then there was eight... The 2016 Hooked Hong Kong Nines will feature eight teams (a 100% increase on 2015) after the Tsim Sha Tsui Renegades registered this week. Players wanting to join the Renegades or any of the seven other teams are encouraged to emailinfo@hongkongrugbyleague.com or message this page to share their interest before Monday's event.
