Hong Kong will field three new caps and a couple of forwards playing out of position as they hit the ground rolling when they take on Singapore in a one-off Test match in the Lion City on Friday. Valley pair Pete Spizzirri and Lachlin Miller, and DeA's Jon Abel will win their first caps as they start against Singapore. A further four new internationals are on the reserve bench - Paul Chiu, George Di, Andy Yuen and Peter Clough. While the presence of the new faces in the starting lineup will not unduly worry head coach Chris Roden, what will be of more concern is how fast Miller and James Wood will come to terms with playing out of position. Miller and Wood, who are both second-rowers, will play at No 8 and tighthead prop respectively. 'There is no question about it. I'm a little apprehensive. But this is a good opportunity to try them out. We have a good team, but you are never quite sure how they will perform,' said Roden. The unavailability of captain Paul Dingley and the loss of Jarrad Gallagher has left Hong Kong threadbare in the No 8 position. And with props Duncan Robertson not available for Singapore and Damian Babis having said he would not be available for the Asian Championships in Bangkok next month, the selectors have been forced to try out Wood in the front row. 'There is no natural back-up to Dingley and Gallagher at No 8. But I'm quite hopeful of Lachlin [Miller]. He has the mobility to be a No 8,' said Roden, who will be using this match also as a final selection trial before naming a 24-strong squad for Bangkok. The team will be captained by fullback Roden with Miller his deputy and pack leader. The notable feature of the pack is that seven players have changed from the last Test in June against China. 'There have been a number of changes. We have also lost lock Adam Horler and flanker Wes Packer,' added Roden. Having nine local players in the 22-strong squad adds another dimension to the experimentation which Roden hopes will be successful in light of the Asian Championships. But he sounded a warning, saying places were not assured for the trip to Bangkok. 'We will basically re-select the squad after this match. These 22 players won't necessarily be the 24 going to Bangkok,' said Roden.
