Valley will go out as favourites to win the Heineken Union Sevens at Kings Park today. The First Division competition will be Hong Kong sevens coach Jim Rowark's first opportunity this season to see the best players in the SAR under match conditions and Valley will be going all out to impress. 'A lot of guys have been seriously training for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Argentina and they are quite keen to do well tomorrow at the Union Sevens,' Grant Beauzeval, the Valley convenor, said yesterday. Among a virtual national roster is Jon Dingley who, is returning to action this season in a bid to win a berth for the World Cup. Dingley has been in the wilderness for the past couple of season although he was pulled out of 'retirement' for last season's finale against Football Club. 'Yes, Jon has been to some of the training sessions and is putting himself back into contention,' Rowark said yesterday. 'The Union Sevens will give me an opportunity to assess the players under match situation.' Like his younger brother Paul Dingley, who is the Hong Kong captain, Jon Dingley too is a No 8/flanker. He has represented Hong Kong at both sevens and 15s before taking a break. Another former Hong Kong representative trying to force his way into the sevens team is Warren Warner, who will be appearing for Football Club today. Football Club's focus, however, has been on the new All-China League, which kicks off next week. Sevens has taken a back seat in their pre-season build-up. 'I think we must have spent about five minutes on sevens at last night's training,' said Club winger Chris Gordon. And to make matters worse, Club will miss star fullback Matt Reede today. Speedster Reede is currently in Beirut on business and will be back only at the end of this month. On paper, Valley will go out clear favourites to win the five-team First Division, which also includes Headstrong Kowloon, DeA and AMI Aberdeen. Along with the Dingley brothers, Valley will boast Hong Kong Sevens players in Robin Bredbury, Rodney McIntosh, Brent Edwards, Carl Murray, Jason Going and Jon Clarke. 'It is almost a Hong Kong sevens team. They are determined to do well,' said Beauzeval. The Valley fullback will, however, be cheering on his mates from the touchline. An injury at the Valley 15s has put paid to Beauzeval's hopes of making it into the World Cup squad. 'I was out for all of last season, too. I had hoped I could be back and win a place to Argentina. But unfortunately this injury will see me on the sidelines this season, too,' he said.
