Saturday 25th February saw URFC play HK Scottish Bravehearts at Shek Kip Mei.
Saturday 18th Feb saw the culmination of the regular season in the RugbyPass.com Men’s Premiership and the KPMG Women’s Premiership.
With Societe Generale Valley teams topping both the Men’s and Women’s Premiership tables, Happy Valley was the place to be for the final games of the regular season. Societe General Ladies Black went into their match against second placed Ga Wu Falcons knowing that there was an outside chance of the Falcon’s edging out Valley to win the league. If the second placed Falcons could win, (scoring 4 tries or more and by at least 8 match points more than Valley), whilst also preventing Valley from getting a bonus point, then the Falcon’s would edge out Valley and would top the table on match points difference.
By contrast the Valley Men’s team went into their final match against Herbert Smith Freehills Hong Kong Cricket Club with the Premiership already secure. Despite a stumble earlier in the season that saw Kowloon draw level Valley came into their final match with an unassailable lead over second in the table Kowloon RFC guaranteeing them the Premiership title for the second year in a row.
Despite having already secured the Premiership there was no let up from SG Valley Men’s who won their match 61-26
With more at stake the ladies of Societe Generale Valley Ladies Black battled to a tight win over the Gai Wu Falcons with the final score at 8-7.

Thursday is a bit early in the week to be in the dog house. Normally I’m not in the dog house unless I arrive home drunk on a Saturday night. This week is different as the Dog House in question is the bar in Wanchai who have been massively generous in their sponsorship of the Hong Kong University Rugby Football Club’s 2015 tour to Seoul, South Korea. It is Thursday 16th April and the HKU ladies and mens teams are arriving for dinner and drinks before heading off to Hong Kong airport to catch a 1.00am flight to Seoul.
Being a University team the purpose of the visit is primarily cultural education and sporting in nature. There will be visits to the Gyeongbokgung Palace and the DMZ, and Rugby games played against local Seoul teams. A couple of the team members may also have a beer or two if they get thirsty.
And so to the Rugby. The first match was the HKU Unicorns Vs the Seoul Sisters…..
