Minis Division

Mini rugby

It's not the winning but the spirit of fair-play, enjoyment and safety that is paramount.

This aim forms the basis upon which mini rugby is structured in Hong Kong and, indeed, in many countries. A competitive spirit is inevitable in any sport, but with children this should not be allowed to dominate or to detract from the joy of simply playing this game.

Currently there are more than a dozen clubs in Hong Kong offering mini rugby to almost three thousand children! It is arguably the best organised sport for children in Hong Kong featuring multi-club festivals and involvement in the international Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.

The Hong Kong Mini Rugby Union oversees the game for players under 12 and arranges for all players to be insured. All clubs are represented and through this body maintain links with the HKRFU, which provides financial and training support. The last five years has seen a dramatic move from a sport previously dominated by expatriates to one in which all sectors of the community are involved especially the Chinese population.

The rules of mini rugby attempt to maximise the opportunities of each player to become involved in the game, develop skills commensurate with their age, and maintain safety. Details of the basic rules can be found in the either the indiviual team sections or for the various age groups in the Referee section. It is very important that everyone (coaches, players, parents and referees) has read and understood the code of conduct

weekly update

I trust all of you had a great time at Sandy Bay last Sunday.

There were some spirited displays by the youngest Tigers including a large number of tries by future Tiger sensation Kingston.

Advise to U6s: Just spear tackle that camera man next time, Reuben!

The U9 bambinos came back from Tigerfest gloom and took revenge with some massive wins, including vs FC1. Ragazzi ben fatto!

It had to happen one day: U10s A-team finally got their butts handed to them firmly in a loss to HKU1 but they came back fighting after some cotton candy and a few slaps by Stevie G. U10 B team won all 4.

U11 played some fantastic rugby and are now all ready for their tour to Singapore next week.

The U12 lassies smashed through the group stages in familiar fashion but ended up missing out on the cup, losing 1:3 to HKU in a bruiser.

Over at the Valley the U12 boys won the bowl and have now been promoted to the plate competition. Well done!



Training as usual this Sunday at KP, starting 8:30am sharp!!!

TSUNAMI will sell some supporters wear on the spot so bring some cash. Backpacks will also be for sale.
Those who haven't collected the drink bottles the kids made during Tigerfest, please pick them up as well.
