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 you all had a great time at last Sunday's HKU festival at Sandy Bay. I tried to catch as many games as possible and was pleased to see our little Tigers putting in some solid performances. Highlights for me were witnessing a bruiser of a game between the touring Singapore Centaurs and our U10 Bambinos and seeing a new star emerging: U8s Albert Wang has a side-step and acceleration that would put Campese to shame.

 Over at the Valley, both the U12 girls and boys had a though day playing at Cup level but both remained in the top flight of the competitions.

weekly update

No training tomorrow as we are travelling to the HKU festival at Sandy Bay. There will be an early bus leaving from the usual spot at Wylie Rd at 7:30am sharp. The same bus will leave Sandy Bay at 1pm to return to KP.
No parking at the sports ground but 3 hours of free parking will be provided at Cyberport if you take your child in rugby kit to the Shroff office for validation. Shuttle busses will run from 8am from the Cyberport cinema to the ground.
Rumour has it that Santa will pay a visit around 12:30pm.

Please note that our bank details have changed!!! The old HSBC account is now defunct, and the new details are listed on the application page.


With Superstars such as Liam Messam, SBW, Quade Cooper and Bryan Habana planning to make an appearance to prove their skills for Rio, this will likely become the largest ever Hong Kong Seven's. It's therefor almost guaranteed that our club's ticket allocations will be far less than demand.

It was great to see so many Tigers in the stadium last weekend. Despite HK losing out in the end I hope you all had a great time.
