The Chinese dragon roared mightily as they ran out 30-16 winners over Sri Lanka to win the Bowl competition and finish eighth in the 12-team Asian Championship at King's Park yesterday. Spurred on by match-winning performances from dynamic No8 He Zhongliang and fullback Johnny Zhang Zhiqiang (pictured above), China scored four tries as they swept past Sri Lanka, who are now coached by their former mentor George Simpkin. It was China's first-ever win over Sri Lanka. 'China played superbly. Their forwards were dynamic, especially their No8 who was terrific in broken play. He made huge inroads into the Sri Lanka defence,' said Jim Rowark, the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union's director of coaching. Zhang scored one of the four tries and kicked two conversions and two penalties to score half of his side's points. In the consolation match in the Bowl competition, India scored a historic first win at the Asian Championship when they defeated Pakistan 56-3.
