Defending champions Hong Kong Football Club threw down a saucy challenge yesterday with skipper Matt Reede claiming that no other First Division team can match his side's backs. 'Club's strength this season lies in our backs. No team can match us for speed. Other teams may be able to match us in the forwards and for ball recycling but we have the best backs in the business,' said Reede. Unfortunately for Reede his backs won't be able to show what they are really capable of today as their opening game in the Super Sixes League competition is up at King's Park against JMC Kowloon (4.15 pm). 'King's Park is not a first-grade oval. Give us a wider pitch and we could do some damage. But the small oval at King's Park won't suit our game,' said Reede, who can play either on the wing or at fullback. The narrow pitch will be right up Kowloon's alley. Reede knows that Kowloon's forwards will play a tight spoiling game. AMI Aberdeen, meanwhile, will take the field today after the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union arranged for them to borrow a prop from the PLA Sports Institute. Aberdeen, who will meet Boddingtons Valley today at the Aberdeen Stadium (4 pm), postponed their game against Football Club last week. 'But we will definitely be playing tomorrow . . . the PLA has generously helped us out with a prop,' said club captain Rob Perren yesterday. With their visas sorted out, the PLA will take on DeA at Tai Hang Tung (6.30 pm).
