Hong Kong Test reject Isi Tu'ivai has been invited to play for a World select side at an international tournament in New York at the end of November during Thanksgiving. Tu'ivai, who was dropped from the Hong Kong side to meet Fiji in the first Foster's Test on Sunday at the Aberdeen Stadium, said he was thrilled at the invitation. 'I'm certainly looking forward to playing in that tournament. Many of the world's top players have been invited to play for the World side,' said Tu'ivai. Among the top names in world rugby who have been invited are All Blacks Jonah Lomu, Christian Cullen and Eric Rush, and Springbok full-back Andre Joubert. The two-day tournament, to be played at Central Park, will feature both seven-a-side and 10-a-side rugby. Tu'ivai is still waiting for the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union to clear the invitation. National coach George Simpkin, who said that he had not heard anything about the invitation, added: 'Any invitation has to go through to the Union.' Tu'ivai said: 'I will try and clear it with George. I don't think Hong Kong will have any commitments during the New York tournament.' The territory will play in the Asian Rugby Football Tournament in Taipei from November 2-9. According to Simpkin, Tu'ivai was dropped from the Hong Kong team for Sunday's Test because he had not turned up at practices. The local season will kick off tomorrow with the annual Budweiser Aberdeen Sixes. Eighteen men's teams and six women's teams representing all the clubs in Hong Kong will participate in the one-day event at the Aberdeen Stadium. Play will commence at 1 pm.
