Hong Kong ended the away legs in the inaugural Triangular tournament unbeaten after pulling off a 19-19 draw against Taiwan yesterday. A penalty by fly-half David Wigley in the closing stages of the game earned Hong Kong a clean slate. Last Saturday, they beat Singapore 12-10. Hong Kong were trailing 19-16 with the clock ticking at the Municipal Stadium in Taipei. But concerted pressure from the forwards saw Hong Kong win two penalties. Wigley was on target with the first but missed the second kick, which would have given Hong Kong a well-deserved victory. 'It was very windy out there and it did not help David [Wigley]. But overall, the result was good given the nature of the side who played,' said coach Phil Campbell. Hong Kong are now complying with the International Rugby Board's three-year eligibility rule. Taiwan out-scored Hong Kong by three tries to two, but paid for their lack of discipline. Centre Jason Going touched down in the first half, while fellow-midfielder Rodney McIntosh did likewise in the second period. Hong Kong led 8-7 at the break and increased it to 16-7, but Taiwan came back strongly scoring two tries from their pacey wingers to edge into the lead. It was left to Wigley to salvage pride and a draw for Hong Kong. Hong Kong Rugby Football Union executive director Allan Payne, who was a spectator at the game, said Hong Kong could have done better in the set-pieces. 'There was a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of effort from the guys. But there were also a lot of mistakes, especially in the lineouts and scrums. If they can eradicate that, things should improve in the future,' said Payne. While the result is encouraging, Campbell sounded a cautionary note. 'The Taiwanese fielded a very young side. There was a 100 per cent change from the side who beat us in Singapore last year. They are building for the future,' said Campbell. At last October's World Cup qualifiers, Hong Kong tumbled to a shock 30-12 defeat at the hands of Taiwan. Hong Kong were looking ahead to the games against South Korea and Japan and rested a couple of key players. They paid the price for that arrogance. Yesterday, Hong Kong called up retired No 8 Jon Dingley - one of the players who did not play last time against Taiwan - and he had an outstanding game, according to Payne. Hong Kong will host Singapore on May 29 (Mongkok Stadium, 4 pm) and Taiwan on June 8 (Hong Kong Football Club, 7 pm).
