Jeff Wong Chun-kiu will wear the captain's armband for the first time as he leads the Hong Kong sevens team in one of their greatest challenges at the World Games in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Scrumhalf Wong, who made his Hong Kong debut in XVs at the Asian Five Nations in April, has his work cut out as he oversees a squad of five new caps in the 12-man team at the Games that features superpowers South Africa, Fiji and Argentina. 'I really enjoyed my first season of international XVs rugby and it is a great honour to be named as national sevens captain,' said Wong (pictured). Hong Kong were invited after China pulled out from the eight-team tournament. With only two weeks to prepare, they face a huge task after being drawn against Fiji, Argentina and Japan in pool B. Hong Kong will open their campaign by taking on defending World Games champions Fiji next Friday. Coach Dai Rees admitted Hong Kong face 'a real challenge' but said the experience would bode well for December's East Asian Games in Hong Kong. 'The World Games will see some of the top sevens nations in the world compete and we're excited to be a part of it,' said Rees. 'We have had only two good weeks to train and it was something we hadn't expected. We are looking to gain experience because the squad needs overseas exposure,' he said. Rees said Fiji and Argentina should prove too strong, , but he hopes they can continue their recent dominance over Japan, having beaten them in last year's Hong Kong Sevens and outperforming them at the Sevens World Cup this year. Hong Kong reached the Bowl semis, while Japan lost in the quarters. 'The Japan game will be the one we will target. If we perform well and beat Japan, we will avoid playing South Africa who are expected to come out on top in pool A,' said Rees. Eight of the 12 players in the Hong Kong squad are of Chinese ethnicity. 'We are entering an exciting period for sevens rugby in Hong Kong. The Asian Sevens Series starts this season, the East Asian Games take place in December followed by the Hong Kong Sevens in March and the Asian Games in December 2010,' said Rees. 'Emphasis has to be on player and team development. It is important to expose inexperienced players to intense competition while ensuring a balance of experienced sevens internationals in each squad.' Rees has given first sevens caps to Simon Leung, Ben Ho Tsz-chun, Mark Komar, So Hok-ken and Salon Yiu Kam-shing.
