What an outstanding first half of the season we’ve had across the grades! The new imports have found their stride and made a real difference to both the Women’s and Men’s Premiership Teams. At the time of writing, Club currently sit comfortably at the top of their league, whilst Ice are in third place.
With the Women’s National League 1 soon to change into two leagues (Championship and NL1), Fire have been fighting hard to stay in the top end of the league, and are currently happily sitting in fifth place! Dragon’s, Scorpion’s, Bull’s and Sequin’s are once again dominating their leagues and are undefeated, whilst Select and Expendables are chugging away in fifth.
The Women's and Men’s Premiership Teams ran out to a cheering crowd at the Hong Kong Stadium on the eve of Halloween. It was a momentous occasion, and a special memory that both the players and the crowd will hold on to long past the stadium move over to Kai Tak.
Off the field there’s lots to report, too! The season opener, Captain’s Dinner, was a huge success (even if I do say so myself). This was closely followed by The Walton Brunch, which was as always a memorably forgetful event - although everyone put in a good shift to drink the Club dry (especially Gav Boak), our efforts were in vein… maybe next year!
Niall Rowark has some how weaseled his way to 100 games with HKFC – rumours have it he’s the youngest centurion in history. James Fisher has finally tied the knot after multiple Covid postponements. Tommy Issacs, Jevon Groves and the better McCormick-Houston have all welcomed new babies to the roost – Congratulations!
It’s been absolutely fantastic to see some semblance of normality creeping back into our rugby lives this season – training, playing and socializing without too much restriction – long may it continue!
Until the next time,
Captain, Rugby Section
