HONG KONG captain Stuart Krohn has called for his side to start getting into the ''good habit'' of winning, on the eve of their first tour game against Durban club side Empangeni. ''We must get a winning pattern going. And we must start it right now and hopefully keep it going until November,'' Krohn said. If the rest of his teammates heed his words, and perform to maximum potential, Hong Kong will reap the rewards of this tour - by winning October's Asian Rugby Football Tournament, a World Cup qualifying event, in Malaysia. ''Our aim is to return to South Africa next May. To do this we must win the Asian Championships and I feel that we have to start getting focused right now,'' added Krohn. National coach George Simpkin, more to the point, said: ''We came here to win . . . nothing less. I will be disappointed if we don't do well.'' The pressure is on Hong Kong to get their four-game tour of South Africa and Namibia off to a flying start against Empangeni this morning (Hong Kong time). The only thing to filter through so far of the opposition is that Empangeni might field New Zealander Kevin Putt at scrum-half. Putt, who has played in the Hong Kong Sevens for New Zealand is currently playing rugby here. The volatile Putt has shone to the extent that he is on the Natal bench for Saturday's vital Currie Cup game against Transvaal at King's Park. Coach Simpkin will take a gamble by playing Chris North at tight head. North, normally a loose-head prop, has been shunted into this position as regular tight-head Dave Lewis will be taking up hooking duties. Ashley Jones will be the other bulwark. The second row will feature the territory's top two jumpers - in the absence of the banned Neil Alton - Grant Jamieson and Roger Patterson. Jamieson will jump at two while Patterson will be in the middle of the lineout. The back row, where Hong Kong have an abundance of quality players will see Tony Hunt, keen to make a good impression. Hunt, who was not a member of the team in Japan, will play at openside, while Will Wild will be at blind with Krohn the number eight. Hunt will have to use grab this opportunity, as waiting in the wings is Rick Shuttleworth, regarded as the number one breakaway. Shuttleworth had an operation on his heel on Sunday. The halves combination will be Stephen Kidd and Robin Bredbury. The diminutive Bredbury will have to perform exceptionally well if he is to stake a claim from either Jamie McKee or Vaughan Going for the regular fly-half slot. The rest of the backline comprises big centres Rodney Mcintosh and Jeff Piper, with wingers Joe Hancock and Isi Tu'ivai. The full-back will be Going.
