Rugby is a truly great sport. It has got everything you could want: wonderful displays of strength, athleticism and sportsmanship. I've played the game for only two seasons, and I'm already addicted. What's even better about rugby is that we're in Hong Kong - home to the best Sevens tournament in the world. The city has hosted the Rugby Sevens World Cup twice and could even stage the 2009 showpiece. Rugby was a mainly expatriate sport until the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU) launched its development programme a few years ago. And things have changed dramatically. Over the years, rugby had developed a reputation for being a tough sport that only the largest and strongest people can play. This isn't true: there are few 'giants' on the field, but half the players should possess speed rather than strength. For every big man, there's a place for a small speedster. The HKRFU should be praised for trying to bring the sport to everyone. Under the HKRFU's development scheme, I've seen a Sevens tournament run without a single international student. I've played against teams made up entirely of local students. And they put up a really good fight against us. If you've ever thought about playing rugby in Hong Kong, there are many clubs on both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon with reasonable membership fees. I only paid $250 for an entire season, including a jersey. Rugby really is a game for all. Anybody of any build can play, and while you're having fun on the pitch, you're making friends.
