Four Chinese players are in line to be included in the Hong Kong national squad for next month's Asian Rugby Football Tournament in Taipei. The Hong Kong selectors are considering picking members of the Dragons side for the important biennial championships. It would be an unprecedented move, one which will be a major boost to the development of the game locally. 'We will definitely be looking at the best of the Dragons,' said Allan 'Whacker' Payne, chairman of selectors. 'There are a lot of different ideas floating around and we will have to look at all of them.' The move has received backing from the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union. Executive director Pieter Schats was very supportive of the idea. 'I hope that some accommodation is made . . . at some point in time,' said Schats. The Asian Rugby Football Union allows participating unions to bring a 25-strong squad. The feeling in Hong Kong circles is that the tournament would provide the ideal opportunity to blood a few of the Dragons players against Malaysia and maybe Sri Lanka - two of the lesser opponents in Hong Kong's group. South Korea are the other team in the group. Dragons who could be in with a shout are brothers Chan Fuk-ping and Chan Wai-ping, both of whom are backs, and forwards Rambo Leung and Alex Yuen. The selectors - Payne, development squad coach Steve Quirke, Dragons coach Nigel Lloyd and Hong Kong coach George Simpkin - met yesterday for a preliminary meeting where the guidelines for selection were set down. 'We will try to create a blueprint. The actual selection will be done later,' Payne said. The final squad are expected to be named soon after the first round of the league which commences this Saturday.
