Alice Bisley, wife of Colin 'When I came here, Gemma Chambers helped me get a job. She barely knew me, and didn't have to do that. I thought that spoke volumes about Hong Kong people. There are so many opportunities here. 'Colin and I both teach. We both find the Hong Kong children really nice and so keen to learn. (Alice teaches at a kindergarten, and Colin teaches physical education at Hong Kong International School, otherwise known as the American School in Hong Kong). 'We met at school in Nelson in New Zealand and have been together since we were 16. 'I don't think of my life with Colin as being about making compromises or sacrifices. Sure, he's missed my birthday a few times, as it coincides with an overseas tournament every year, that's no big deal. 'I realised recently when he was injured how much I was not ready for him to give up rugby. It's a big part of our lives. And I could see he wasn't having as much fun sitting it out. My belief is that we've both got to make the most of it while we can. 'We came for six months - that was seven years ago! We feel very at home here. Unlike some of the players and their wives who grew up here, we haven't got family here. The other players and their partners are like family to us. 'The Sevens are unbeatable. It's great to be part of it and watching my husband and people I know on the pitch adds a whole different dimension to the fun.'
