FK Players meet & train with England Sevens Team

 

FK England team training

 

Following a draw by secret ballot, 5 deserving Flying Kukris players were selected to take part in the inaugural Canterbury sponsored interactive training session with 3 members of the England Men’s Sevens Team.

 

The training event was held at Harrow International School, Tuen Mun on Sunday 1 April 2018 and was overseen by host Mr. Barney Durrant of Harrow International School.

 

The 5 players selected from Contact age groups U9 – U14, were drawn from a list of coach nominated “season best performers”.

 

Those selected to participate were   

U14B Jeffrey Parkes, U14G Jade Scrouther, U12B Daniel Thomas, U12G Katie Adams & U10B Dylan Fu.

 

In addition to meeting and being coached by 3 England Sevens star players, each participant was given a commemorative Canterbury T-Shirt. The 2 hour session comprised drills, games, Q&A’s, photo-shoot & an autograph session. Our FK players were joined by players from Hong Kong Football Club, Island School and Harrow International School all of which use Canterbury kit.

 

The session went extremely well and the Players had a cracking time.

 

Player Jade Scrouther said afterwards "It was great to spend time with Charlie, Will and Alex.  We had a lot of fun doing some drills and trying new moves with them and the boys."

 

All thanks should be given to Anna Holmes (Sales Manager Asia – International Business Manager  - Pentland Asia) who brokered the arrangement and to FK’s very own Kit Manager Melissa Jupp who used her charm and business guile to secure the involvement of our FK players. Also thanks go to our hosts Mr Barney Durrant and Harrow International School.

 

Hopefully this event will be offered again next season, so watch out and work hard kids.

Natalee has a go in the Mud!

Natalee (U14G) is one of the sharpest, most determined and most ferocious players we have in Flying Kukris RFC. Whilst she’s a lovely, quiet and unassuming girl she’s never slow at getting stuck in to the Rugby action, wherever she can find it. She’s so keen she even takes her rugby gear on Holiday!

Natalee England 2018 2

So whilst on a visit to England over Easter she sought out the local playing fields and found just what she wanted and immediately just got stuck into the rugby, mud and fun.

Playing for a new club “Shrewsbury” U13 girls, she found herself in a tough match facing off against Worcester, the Midlands Champions, who ultimately won the game 7 tries to 3.

Natalee England 2018

Natalee, perfectly at ease with a new team of girls she didn’t know,  immediately made a massive impact and played an ever increasingly important role in the game, putting in tackle after tackle she opened the scoring with the first try. She also took on all kicking duties and helped the new Shrewsbury team to hold their own against the more organised and disciplined West Midlands Champions.

Impressed with Natalee’s performance, the Shrewsbury coach commented “the standard in Hong Kong is clearly higher than in England…so when can she join Shrewsbury?”

The Shrewsbury Coach and U13 girls were also really impressed to hear that Hong Kong U13 girls play full size pitches, not half size pitches, as in the UK.

The Shrewsbury girls were welcoming and friendly and asked Natalee lots of questions about rugby in Hong Kong and the club she played for… and when can she play for them again?

But poaching aside, it was not all plain sailing, Natalee did have some trouble dealing with the slippery and muddy conditions when running and kicking, but in the end the smiles say it all and she had a fabulous muddy time and made some great new friends.

But best of all Natalee was super impressed with the after match reception where the girls were well looked after in fantastic facilities, treated to showers, food and soft drinks whilst the club organised all the girls dirty laundry!!

EdUHK Pitch Update

new astro pano

 

Our new Astro pitch is providing a much better surface to train and play on, with rugby markings and posts.  This will also provide a local venue for our kids to play competitive matches and watch other rugby fixtures.

 The infill granules are "EPDM" which are not only virgin rubber (rather than recycled tyres etc) but also pale in colour so hopefully won't get so hot and at the very least won't show so much when they fall out of shoes / boots after using the pitch!

For the start of the season we currently have the options of Grass and Astro on Sunday mornings and Astro on some Sunday afternoons.  We also have Astro available on Wednesday evenings for mid-week training.

The grass pitch has had new drainage and irrigation pipes installed and has been re-turfed.

 

 

 

Level 1 Referee courses

All coaches, parents and players are encouraged to attend Level 1 Referee courses before the start of next season.  Anyone over the age of 14 can attend the Level 1 Referee course if they would like to improve their skills in this area and contribute more to giving players a fair go on the pitch. Dates of courses can be found here

Prerequisites are completion of Rugby Ready and Laws test on World Rugby (www.worldrugby.org) which everyone is encouraged to complete anyway.  The Club will reimburse the fee on production of their Level 1 Referee certificate.

Parking at HKIEd - we have received complaints from the EdUHK management about the parking on Sundays. We are NOT ALLOWED to park along the side of the road next to the stadium and also DO NOT block the lower exit. The lower exit is normally closed but is for emergency vehicles. Failure to obey HKIED rules may result in us loosing the ground for training. Please see the map below and note there is additional parking just down the road outside HKIED.

To relieve the parking problem at EdUHK, please use the TSW / Tuen Mun bus or Tai Po bus if possible. These buses are heavily subsidised by the club to encourage their use. If they are not used, we may have to cancel them.

Support HK Scottish as part of their Ball Retrieval Team

As the junior club for HKS, Flying Kukris players in age groups U11 upwards, have the opportunity to support HKS through the Premiership season, by joining the ball retrieval team for their home matches.

 HKS require 8 FK players for ball retrieval per game. Ball retrievers will receive a Hong Kong Scottish T-shirt for the first match and $50 per game.  Although not guaranteed it will work the same way this year, four Flying Kukris members of the HKS ball retrieval team, were selected for ball retrieval duties at the HK Sevens, for the last six years. The HK Sevens ball retrieval team have free access to the stadium, meal allowance, souvenir rugby ball and can meet the players.

If you are interested in joining the ball retrieval team, email me  at [email protected] to let me know (Do not just turn up on the day). I will then contact you later to arrange availability. For more details on dates etc. please click here
