HK Scottish Kukris Pick Up First Silverware of the Season

Saturday 6th September was the start of the season with the Hong Kong Scottish Day at King’s Park. The new look HKS Kukris, with recent recruits from the UK and several graduates from last year’s under-18s, had a fantastic day, albeit after a slow start. A narrow loss to Gai Wu was followed by good wins over HK Football Club, Kowloon and Causeway Bay. In spite of the heat, the girls managed to dispatch a vintage Valley side in the semi-final, before soundly beating Tigers in the final and winning the competition. More celebration was the order of the day as Rachel Fong was deemed to be the Most Outstanding Player of the Day from the Women’s games.

The HKS men also made their final, but were unable to overcome a strong Valley side.

USRC Tigers took the Bowl crown after beating out HKCC.

All in all a great start to the season for the club.

Early registration and payment 

Help us and help yourself, and beat the queue. We now have approx 50% of last year's membership who have registered and paid for the coming season  If you are planning to rejoin us in Sep, we would ask you to visit the membership page of the website here and complete the Membership application form. We also have a Flying Kukris parent help list which we would appreciate you having a look at and seeing where you can help.

The Deadline for submitting member numbers to the HKMRFU for HK Seven's tickets allocation is Sep 30th. All 2013-14 season members who would like to apply for Sevens Tickets should be registered and paid by Sunday, Sep 21st. Any 2013-14 member who is registered after Sep 21st   may not be allocated any tickets (depending on availability). Incoming New members who register after this date but before sevens ticket deadline kicks in are not affected.

If we can get the majority signed up before the season starts, we can concentrate more on helping new members and issuing the kit


Donation to Philippines RFU

We have recently donated some unused FK jerseys and shorts to the Philippine RFU. The kit was handed over at the Philippines vs South Korea A5N game. A letter of appreciation from the PRFU can be found here. As you might notice from the letter, the PRFU are looking for further items of kit especially rugby boots. If you have spare boots, can I suggest you bring them to HKIEd SC when training restarts at the end of August (date to be confirmed).


Website reloaded

As you may have noticed, this website was down on the 3rd June 2014. This was because the entire website has been rebuilt and was up-loaded on that day. The appearance remains similar to before, however the management of the site is now easier and the amount of server space we are using has decreased from almost 20GB (the server limit for our plan) to 140MB. This will allow us to build up a much bigger photo gallery over the coming years. Team managers / Coaches will still be able to Login and update their team pages, but will have to re-register to get access. The photo gallery is available here

Sanix World Rugby  Youth Tournament 2014 Girls Sevens
Sanix world rugby 2014
We welcome back the U18 7's Girls Squad after their weekend in Japan successfully competing in the SANIX World Youth Tournament. Under the watchful eye of Coach Andy Yuen and HKSI Elite 7's Coach Anna Richards the girls performed brilliantly in what was tough competition and schedule.

The squad started strongly with a 7-0 victory against local high school Kobe Kohoku. Try by Gracie Mann and Conversion Victoria. Fukuoka Ladies were next in the girl's sights but they unfortunately went down 12-31 - Try Jade / Emily Tuck. Conversion Victoria. The third game saw our girls take on New Zealanders from Fielding High School where again the result didn't go our way; 0-26. Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute from Canada were the fourth team to stand in the way and, in an impressive turnaround from the disappointment of game three, the girls thrashed the Canadians 31-0 setting up a 5-6th place game against Iwami Chisuikan High School from Japan. In a tightly fought game the girls gave their all just losing out 14-17 to finish in 6th.

Non-Verbal Scrum Command - iRB Directive
 The iRB has changed the command for the scrumhalf to put the ball into the scrum. 

With immediate effect, all referees in Hong Kong have been notified to use a ‘non-verbal’ command to allow the scrumhalf to put the ball into the scrum. It has been agreed by the HKRFU and HKSRFUR that all our referees will use the same command which is outlined below.

When the referee is on the same side as the scrumhalf feeding the ball, he/she will tap the scrumhalf on the right shoulder to indicate the ball can be put into the scrum. When the referee is on the opposite side to the scrumhalf, he/she will use eye contact or a nod of the head to indicate the ball can be put into the scrum. On this command, the scrumhalf must feed the ball without delay. The sanction for not complying with this law will remain the same (free kick to the non-offending team).

Please read the press release from the iRB here
