The Hong Kong women’s 7s team are adamant of taking on the challenge while playing in the Crest Na Iri Trophy this weekend.

The Kevin West coached- side arrived into the country yesterday ready to make their debut.

“We’re really excited,” West said.

“It will be a good challenge for the ladies, who I am coaching.”

They are in Pool M alongside Snax Nadi Aviators, and Striders.

“We don’t get a lot of chance to play outside Asia. I saw this competition last year and they play quality rugby so it’s a great challenge for us.”

The side boast the inclusion of Natasha Thorne and Christie Cheng Ka-chi who played at the 2017 Women World Cup in Ireland.

“It is exactly something different, 7s is religious here in Fiji and we play differently. So it’s a  different thing for us, the flair and the offloading.”
