The Harrow International School, which is associated with the famous Harrow School in London, is Hong Kong’s first international boarding and day school in the region.
As part of Harrow’s new Rugby League program, Hong Kong Thunder coach, Jason Fairleigh, will conduct a series of training sessions making the students familiar with the rules and techniques required to play Rugby League.
