MAK Ping-keung, also known affectionately by the rest of his Third Division teammates as 'Mongolian' stepped into the breach as Hong Kong Football Club Blues were embarrassingly left short of a front-rower before the start of yesterday's First Division game against Valley Blacks. 'Mongolian' who turns out for Third Division side Bulls, was drafted in at loose-head prop with the Club side struggling with numbers. Club were forced to call upon the services of another Bulls players, winger Alan Fung, in the first half due to an injury to one of their regulars. This snippet highlights the creaky foundations of the San Miguel First Division. Last week, Police had to deploy many of their senior players into the second team, Police Wanderers, who were struggling to field a side. Yesterday the movement of players was in the other direction - from the lower divisions into the higher, and from one club to another. 'We just don't have enough front-row players to split between three teams,' said former Football Club captain John Clarke. 'Valley only have to worry about splitting their side two ways, while we have to do it three ways.' Injuries or other commitments could force Football Club to scrounge around for players every week. Thankfully for them, 'Mongolian' and Fung were sitting around after having just completed a Third Division game against Valley Jockeys at So Kon Po yesterday. 'Mongolian' a former Hong Kong judo international, was destined to play in two losing sides yesterday. The Bulls lost 56-12 to Valley Jockeys. In the next game, Club Blue lost 48-10 to Valley Blacks, who scored eight tries in all. Seven of these tries were scored by the backs with Mark Solomon, Vaughan Going and Jeremy Smith getting a brace each. The new revised version of the League, split into three divisions and now in its second week, may provide competitive games for all. But the downside is that a side like Bulls which is mainly Chinese and who used to play in the Fifth Division last season, suddenly find themselves playing a side comprising former First Division players who just want a run around. This was the case yesterday. Valley Jockeys had four former First Division players - Colin Olsen, Geoff Reid, Dave Spicer and Luke Mcguinetty. These players may not want to play First Division rugby. But in the lower divisions, they are too strong and good for a side like the Bulls, who can now resign themselves to being beaten by huge margins every week. Wasn't this the same reason why clubs like Aberdeen and Kowloon cried out of the First Division earlier this season?
