THE HONG KONG RUGBY UNION LOOKS FORWARD TO PARTICIPATING IN THE GLOBAL RAPID RUGBY SHOWCASE SERIES

01 Feb 2019

While disappointed at the postponement of the kick-off of the inaugural Global Rapid Rugby season, the Hong Kong Rugby Union remains excited about its involvement with this innovative new competition and looks forward to participating in the Showcase Series in 2019.

While ready to take to the pitch now, the South China Tigers will instead use the Showcase Series as an early hit-out against the strong teams lining up for next year’s competition and an opportunity to acclimatize to the exciting new scoring system at the heart of Global Rapid Rugby’s appeal.

Announcements about the 2019 Showcase Series squad and management team, along with the reveal of our logo and livery, will be made in due course as we look ahead to the official start of the competition in 2020.

As host of the historic Hong Kong Sevens, the HKRU understands that innovation in the game takes time to achieve and we will continue to work closely to support Andrew and his team at Global Rapid Rugby in putting on another great show for Hong Kong and the rugby world.
