Crocked winger won't play in HK, but vows to make an impact later in tour Junk bonds are out. But junk Wallabies are definitely in, and they lapped it up enjoying Hong Kong's scenic harbour yesterday. While the All Blacks trained at So Kon Po, the Wallabies enjoyed a precious day off - before coach Robbie Deans revs it up again today - to take in the sights. 'This does feel weird. It feels more like a holiday,' said Australian superstar winger Lote Tuqiri. 'But then we have never played a test match in Hong Kong before and everyone is really excited and looking forward to it.' The sights and sounds of Hong Kong have left Tuqiri and his teammates overwhelmed as they prepare for Saturday's ANZ Hong Kong 2008 Bledisloe Cup against the old enemy. The giant winger has been ruled out of the game as he is still recovering from a knee injury, but he fully backed the move to push the borders of the game and bring the Bledisloe Cup to Hong Kong. 'We have enjoyed every minute so far. There is an assault of people walking every which way. This is what we play rugby for. There is plenty of merit in coming here and the players are enjoying it,' Tuqiri said. Tuqiri, 29, underwent minor knee surgery several weeks ago, but has resumed running and believes he is ready for action, although Deans has ruled him out of the first two legs on this tour in Hong Kong and Italy. 'I definitely feel good and my knee has come along fine. I hope to be back next week,' Tuqiri said. 'There is no fluid left and fingers crossed I should get some game time soon.' In March this year, Tuqiri quashed fears that he would return to rugby league by signing a five-year deal with the Australian Rugby Union. It is believed he stayed after receiving an A$1.2 million (HK$5.7 million)-a-season deal from sponsors. While the Wallabies will miss his huge presence on Saturday at Hong Kong Stadium, Tuqiri has vowed to make a strong comeback. 'I know I just cannot waltz back straight into the team. I will have to earn my spot back. This is a big squad and there are a lot of guys out there. I have opposition,' Tuqiri said. But having won 66 caps on the wing, it won't be long before Tuqiri is back in the side. His experience - he played in the last two World Cups - will be much desired by Deans, who will use it to nurse through a new generation of exciting backs. Tuqiri, who has scored 30 test tries, was philosophical about how close the Wallabies came to winning the Tri-Nations in Brisbane - they lost 24-28 to the All Blacks. 'We should have won that match. But at least we have got the respect back. Although this game [Hong Kong] will not decide the Bledisloe Cup, every game against the All Blacks is important,' he said. 'In fact, all these games on this tour are important as it will count towards seedings for the next World Cup. Our aim will be to stay in the top three in the world, or hopefully go better, and as such we will want to win all our games next month,' added Tuqiri.
