The John Paul-coached Hong Kong mens team is looking forward to make the list of core teams in the World Sevens Series.

The side arrived into the country to compete in their second Mana Whey Fiji Coral Coast 7s at the Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka which starts on Friday.

Pau John said, “We are looking forward to it obviously hope to create things in our favour.

“It will be great for us to get some quality sevens and it is very big year for us. We bring the best players to play 7s. It will be a fantastic experience for us all.”

The team is comprised by Ben Rimene, alongside Calvin Hunter, Christophe Maize, Eric Kwon Pak Nga, Lee Jones, Jason Jeyam, Rowan Varty, and Kane Boucat.

“We have few boys who play in the World Sevens Series in Singapore. But this is a new mix of young and experienced players,”Paul said.

“The long term goal for the team this year is the Hong Kong 7s qualifier in April, Rugby Sevens World Cuo and then the Asian Games.”

The side is in Pool S alongside Coastal Ratu Filise, Tovolea, and McDonalds Saunaka.

Reigning champions First Light Taveuni are the top seed in Pool Q with Shangri-La’s Daveta, Police and Sigatoka River Safari Henibua.

Pool R has Cross of Victory, Stars USA, BLK Iron Courage, and Wardens

Pool T has Lomavata Blues, Shipping Services Suva Stallions, Ravuka Sharks and Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort team.
