HK Scottish Kukris Ladies Team

HKSKukrisvUSRCTigers25th February2017


HKS Kukris 25 Feb 17

The WNL1 quarter final between Hong Kong Scottish Kukris and USRC Tigers had all the makings of a classic encounter, but the form was difficult to predict. The teams finished fourth [Kukris] and fifth [Tigers] in the league, reflecting their rollercoaster performances. Head to head Kukris had narrowly beaten Tigers at King’s Park, while at their most recent clash, Tigers had easily beaten Kukris at The Rock. So much for home advantage. And the noise from the stands showed that the visiting Tigers supporters had every intention of being the loudest.

            The match started at a frantic place, with both teams giving away penalties. Over eager or nervous? It was hard to tell. After a period of stout defending, Kukris drove up the field. With ball in had LI Sze-ting passed the 22, and found two defenders between her and the try line. A classy double sidestep put her clean through, and she scored under the posts. Karis Cheng converted; 7/0 to HKS Kukris. Tigers responded well, only for Kukris to soak up the pressure. Then Kukris won the ball and displayed excellent team work. Twice the ball carrier was tackled, only to execute an offload, putting Chung Hau-yi through to score. Again Karis Cheng converted; 14/0. With halftime approaching Tigers looked to reduce their deficit, but Nieve Heskin gained the ball, drove through the defense and score Kukri’s third try. No conversion; 19/0 at halftime.

            After an exceptionally thorough motivational briefing, Tigers came out with intent. But they reckoned without the Kukris defensive wall. Time and again the Tigers surged forward. Time and again the Kukris repelled. Then, with Kukris in possession, the ball was worked wide to winger Hui Man-ling, who sprinted from the halfway line to score under the posts. Again Karis Cheng converted; 26/0. But Tigers refused to give up and resumed their assault getting ever closer to the try line. A penalty against them seemed to have cleared the danger. But a hasty, as opposed to quick, tap left Kukris unsupported. Tigers pounced, stole the ball and easily scored in the corner. No conversion; 26/5. Kukris responded with another attack, while Tigers sought to regain the ball. However, neither team was able to trouble the scoreboard before the referee blew fulltime. Kukris victorious meet Tai Po in the semifinals, while Tigers will be disappointed with the result.


HKF KUKRIS v Valley Red 8th October 2016

HKS Kukris 37 / Valley Red 15

2016 17 Kukris Ladies

After a disappointing opening game to the season against Gai Wu, when the Kukris failed to score, the players were understandably nervous against Valley Red. But a vocal home crowd proved to be just the encouragement they needed. The Kukris quickly settled, put Valley under sustained pressure, and it wasn’t long before Ket Robinson went over in the corner. Karis Cheng was unlucky with the conversion, which bounced off the upright. Before Valley could respond, Kukris had scored through Fung Yuen-ting and Hui Man-ling, making it three tries in the spate of seven minutes. Again the conversions were unsuccessful. The pressure on Valley’s try line continued, but they managed to secure the ball and kick up pitch. But Hui Man-ling caught the ball, accelerated away and scored in the opposite corner. No conversion. Half-time score 20/0 to HKS Kukris.

The second half continued in the same vein. Nieve Heskin, one of the Kukris’ new players from Chicago, exploited a gap and scored under the posts. Karis Cheng made no mistake with the conversion. But Valley responded well, swiftly moving down the field and scoring, 27/5. Any thoughts of a comeback were quickly extinguished, as Crystal Lee, who had an excellent day on the pitch, powered over the line for a classic forwards’ try. But shortly after, as Valley again sought to break out of their own 22, fullback Ket Robinson was deemed to have tip tackled the ball carrier and shown a yellow card. Before Valley could make use of their numerical advantage, Kukris regained possession and passed to Hui Man-ling, who scored her hat-trick, again in the corner. But by now Kukris were looking ragged, and conceding penalties. Valley regrouped and swiftly scored two unconverted tries, but ran out of time to add to the score. Final score 37/15 to HKS Kukris.

Overall a great game for HKS Kukris, who, with the exception of the last ten minutes will be pleased with the performance.  


HKS Kukris Ladies v Football Club Final

2014 15 HKS Kukris V HKFC final 3

In only their second season the Hong Kong Scottish Kukris made the Women's National League 1 Grand Championship Final. The Kukris finished the league in second place, with a remarkable 12 wins, 2 loses, 83 tries scored and a total of 461 points. This was followed by victories in the Grand Championship Quarter finals and Semi finals, leading to the Final at Hong Kong Football Club against Football Club. However, this wasn't achieved without cost, and several injured players were left supporting from the sidelines, with captain Rachel Fong the most notable omission from the team list. Late fitness tests for Antje Cosgrove (scrum half) and Robyn Beese (second row) further reduced the team, with some positions having to be reworked at short notice. That said, the ladies arrived at HKFC in high spirits, even though their old adversary Club, had home advantage.  

The game started at a frantic pace, with Kukris forced to defend for long periods and seldom out of their own half. However, it was sixteen minutes before Club scored a try, although the conversion was unsuccessful. This play continued, with Club scoring two more unconverted tries. Several times Rachel Fong and Ellie Ngan Kee attempted to break the Club line using their speed, but were unsuccessful. Halftime arrived with the score 15/0 to Club. 
The second half started with Kukris showing new confidence and good teamwork. Amanda Manchester join the pack and was both calming and commanding. Alissandra Crowther, new in her scum half position settled and started to impose. And with the pack more assertive, they were able to win more ball and allow the backs to play, with Christy Tang particularly making an impression. However, it was Club who scored next, with another try. Kukris were not disheartened and good team work made space for Ellie Ngan Kee, who scored under the posts with a trademark darting run. Rachel Fong converted. Kukris continues to attack, with forwards Micaela Jansen, Brooke Amnyauchoke and Sophia Abdelraham particularly impressive and unlucky not to score. As Kukris tired, Club managed to score their fifth and final try. The games ended with a 29/7 win for Club, but with the second half an even contest. 
So disappointment for the HKS Kukris in the last game of the season, but the ladies able to proudly reflect on their team achievement.
HKS Kukris v Valley Red Quarter Final - Won 56/19
We are proud to announce another win for the ladies teram, 14 Kukris (briefly 15) but up a valiant and spirited performance against a physical Valley side. Aside from an opening breakaway try and respectability points towards the end as our girls tired, there was never any contest.  Final score 56/19 with all points scored by Ellie Ngan Kee and Rachel Fong.
The HKS Kukris Ladies won their first league match on Saturday 4th Oct. 2014 at Kings Park. It was A hard fought encounter, but the Kukris Ladies came out 10-5 winners against HKCC. Ellie Ngan Kee scored both tries. The Ladies will be playing again on the 11th Oct at 18:00 against HKFC at Shek Kip Mei. 


HK Scottish Kukris Pick Up First Silverware

HK Scottish first silverware

 The new HK Scottish Kukris ladies team picked up their first silverware recently as they took home the Bowl at Gai Wu Ladies Tens Tournament, beating out Valley 15-0 in the final.

With the team very much in its infancy, it is a great result for the girls as they build towards the start of the season. 



HK Scottish Kukris Ladies at Kings Park on 24th Aug 2013

HK Scottish Kukris Ladies at KP 24 Aug 13

The Hong Kong Scottish Kukris, the new ladies team, make their first ever appearance at the Hong Kong Scottish Day, and what a debut it was as they took down HKCC ladies 20-5 with some exceptional rugby from the girls.  In their 2nd game of the day they came up against reigning HK 15s champions Gai Wu and the girls put in a great effort before going down 24-7.  Great to see the team up and running and we look forward to seeing them in action in the Ladies 15s league this year.
