They might be wearing Chinese silk pyjamas from Stanley Market, but these young Welsh men are not here to rest.


'There are 18 of us dressed up in Chinese clothes. These are our pyjamas. Fifteen of us are players from the Pencoed Rugby Football Club. This is the first Sevens we've been to,' said 18-year-old player Kyle Barrett. 'I'm a scrum half.'


They were here to play in the Kowloon Rugby Fest. 'We played a lot of international teams. Unfortunately we came second. We did really well, but we turned up late and missed the first game. We lost points because of that. But we won every other game,' said coach Roger Ravenhill.
