South China Tigers: first Greater Bay Area team to join new Rapid Rugby league

In exciting news for local rugby enthusiasts, for the first time ever, a Rugby 15s team, the FWD South China Tigers, has been formed in Hong Kong to represent the Greater Bay Area in a new regional competition focused on Asia Pacific, the Global Rapid Rugby Showcase Series. At 70 minutes long, a Rapid Rugby match is a sped-up version of traditional rugby 15s match and generates the kind of pace and non-stop action associated with sevens rugby.

Six teams – from Hong Kong, Singapore, Samoa, Fiji, Australia and a combined World XV – will play in the inaugural Showcase Series, with Hong Kong hosting two matches, on 21 April and 12 May at Aberdeen Sports Ground. The South China Tigers team will include, for the first time, international players from both China and Hong Kong, all with Greater China roots.

The new league is set to provide lashings of high-octane fun. Don’t miss it!
