Hong Kong's rugby-playing rapper, Tom McQueen, has forced his way back into the Sevens team - the one change to the East Asian Games silver-medal side - who have set their sights on winning silverware at the Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens next weekend. 'We hope to make the Plate competition at least and our goal this time is to be in the final and hopefully pick up some silverware,' said a delighted McQueen after the 12-man squad was unveiled yesterday. McQueen has been out of the picture since last year's tournament as he has been at university in Australia. But he has come back strongly and pushed Hong Kong Football Club winger Adam Raby out of the team who lost to Japan in the final of the East Asian Games last December. 'Adam can count himself unlucky but there are guys forcing themselves into the team,' said Hong Kong head coach Dai Rees. 'Tom gives us an extra bit of physicality which we will need when we come up against the core teams in the IRB Series.' McQueen has gained a fair bit of fame since he and some other rugby teammates from Hong Kong Cricket Club put out a music video on YouTube - I'm on a Tram - recently. Coach Rees will be hoping that his rapper will show that same zest on the pitch too. 'We did a parody to The Lonely Island rap song I'm on a Boat. It has proved to be quite a hit on YouTube. Maybe I will get into acting and give up rugby,' joked McQueen who will be appearing in his third successive Sevens. 'But really, our goal this time is to go one better than last year when we defeated Portugal and Tonga in the pool games, but then just collapsed on the Sunday against Canada in the quarter-finals of the Plate competition,' McQueen said. Scrumhalf Jeff Wong Chun-kiu, who led the team at the East Asian Games, will continue to be at the helm of the squad that includes three players who will be making their Hong Kong Sevens debuts - forwards Simon Leung Ho-yam and Ben Ho Tsz-chun, and winger Salom Yiu Kam-shing. Rowan Varty, who turned 24 yesterday, is the most experienced player with this being his eighth Hong Kong Sevens, but it has been a long time coming for Leung, who at 28 is the oldest player in the team. 'I have played at Hong Kong Stadium before [East Asian Games] but this will be the first time I will be running out in front of 40,000 people. It still hasn't sunk in that I'm playing at the Sevens,' Leung said. 'I have been to most of the Sevens, but this time I will be actually playing. It will hit me when we turn up on the team bus on Friday. I can't wait for it to begin,' Leung added. Hong Kong are drawn with England, Wales and Japan in the preliminary round. Some pool results from the ongoing Adelaide Sevens - England lost 24-21 to the United States, Wales defeated Fiji 17-12 and Japan defeating France 21-15 - suggests the hosts won't have it easy. But Rees was upbeat. 'It is a dream pool for us. It just has the spice with England, an inexperienced Wales squad who could be vulnerable on the big stage and our arch rivals Japan, We're confident of our chances. Wales and England have been quoted back in the UK press that they are in an easy pool and that will motivate us,' Rees said. 'Our expectations are to be in one of the finals on day three. And we will be looking to make a few upsets on the first two days,' Rees added.
