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

Kung Hei Fat Choi and a very happy and prosperous New Year of the Goat! I hope all of you had some relaxing holidays!

Regular training sessions this Sunday and next as we are entering the final stretch of the season.
The U10 Boys will be playing at the Macau Bats festival tomorrow (Saturday) and knowing those kids they'll be coming back with a massive loot.
Some news from around the club:
It isn't that long ago when they were still talentless minis but now our U14s 1st team have won both, the league and the grand championship, remaining unbeaten the whole season.
The U19s came in 2nd in their league and will face HKFC in the cup final on Sunday.
After a season of countless broken bones and pathetic displays of ball handling the Parents team has made it to the semi finals of the NL5 grand championship after coming third in the league!
We are playing tomorrow (Sat) 1:30pm at The Rock in Shek Kip Mei. Come and have a laugh.
Quite a few of our Tigers have been selected to represent HK in the Borneo Sevens this weekend, a crucial test before that "thing at Caroline Hill" later in March. We wish them great results!
Go Tigers!

weekly update

It's the Valley Fort mini rugby festival this Sunday at Kings Park and I hope our Tigers are eager to get on the pitch. Bring your mouth guards, tackle hard and low and let's show the opposition who's home ground this is!  Oh, and be nice to the French...

The U12 Girls will play at Sandy Bay and the U12 Boys will again battle it out at Happy Valley.


There will be regular training next Sunday (15.02.) before we take a break on 22.02. for the Lunar New Year holidays.


The Six Nations will kick off tonight and the opener between England and Wales will be a somewhat of a family affair for our club: Our very own Tiger front row darling Josh Faletau's brother Toby will feature as Wales' No8 and his cousin Billy Vunipola at the same position for Ingerland. 

Weekly update

Normal training tomorrow starting 8:30 sharp at Kings Park. We will have a few Kukris joining us. Please make them feel welcome. Our Prem team will play Kowloon tonight at KP in what is likely to be the last home game of the season. Bugger! KO is at 6pm. Go Tigers! Markus

weekly update

It's the Tai Po RFC Mini Rugby Festival this Sunday at Kings Park and I hope everyone is ready to go into battle. Please check with your head coaches for details and the schedule.
U12s boys and girls will be playing their cup games at Happy Valley.


Premiership

The Tigers will be playing Football Club at the lovely HKFC on Saturday (17th). All premiership games will be at the same venue throughout the afternoon, so it's gonna be a great day of rugby. Tigers kick off at 18:30.
We had some 100 DeA supporters there for the game earlier in the season and it would be nice to see many of you again. Dress the kids in our kit!


7s ticket update

We have received our allocation and it's even worse than expected. We are severely short of both, adult and kids tickets.
Therefore we will have to introduce some painful measures to allow a fair allocation.

Since U6s won't be playing at the 7s showcase, they were not included in the ticket allocation by the HKRFU. Therefor, unfortunately, they will be on the bottom of the queue.

To ensure transparency in the process, the priority order for ticket allocation is based on the following:

1. Committee members, former chairs, persons active in the administration and running of the club and their registered playing children at minis
2. General Age Group Head Coaches, Managers and their registered playing children at minis
3. Assistant Coaches and their registered playing children at minis
