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

Training as usual this Sunday at King's Park. Those who travel to Tin Shui Wai for the Eagles Festival: your bus will depart at 8:30am from the usual spot on Wylie Rd. Don't be late! 

Kit distribution will move to the cages at the end of pitch 2. Look for Jo and her crew to help you out. We have run out of small sizes for the U6s and will reorder some quantities asap.

The Premiership season will officially kick off this Saturday, with all matches being played at King's Park. Tigers will face HKFC at 3pm. Please come down, dress the kids in kit and support our lads. If we get enough kids to come we perhaps could even continue our longstanding opening-game tradition of forming a tunnel for our Premiership players when they run on the pitch.
If you are following the RWC make sure to tune in and watch the Argentina vs Tonga match on Sunday when our very own U12 halfback sensation Joseph "JoJo" Galea will hand the ball over to the big boys at Leicester City Stadium. He was selected by DHL to be the ball ambassador for that game.  Good luck and Swing Low to Joseph and all Tigers who are headed over there to watch some games live.
Go Tigers!

It was nice to see such a great turnout on our first day of the season last Sunday. 

Finally! The 2015/16 Tigers mini rugby season starts on Sunday

Dust off your boots and get that mouth guard out from behind the sofa cushions! The season finally starts on Sunday. The grass is freshly mown at KP so be there from 8:30 sharp as usual.
And, oh miracle, we might even be able to hand out the new kit, so bring along your registration print-outs and payment proof. No payment proof - no kit.
But no rush please: Jo and her band of volunteers will be there every Sunday for the next weeks, so if you see a long line, don't panic: Get yourself some cheesy fries from the kiosk and come back next week.
Size 3 balls will be handed out to newbies only. Everyone else who wants one better have a watertight explanation.
