This Sunday 27 May, Hong Kong Rugby League (HKRL) play host to the fourth annual HKRL Nines tournament starting at 4pm (order of play below) at King’s Park Sports Ground, Kowloon, following shortly after the HKTag Challenge (9am – 3pm).
Following the huge success of the last four years, nine teams have entered the 2018 tournament and – for the very first time – HKRL are delighted to host a North vs South Womens Nines competition (6pm, Pitch 1).
The nine confirmed men’s teams include returning fan favourites, the Diamond Chiefs, from Papua New Guinea, a Tonga Rugby League development team visiting Hong Kong shores for the first time, alongside seven local teams. Domestic teams Oreana Storm, Charlie Bears, Pacific Toa and Wave Wearers will compete for the very first time.
