HONG KONG play the most important match on their four-game tour, the one-off international against Namibia this morning (Hong Kong time), with coach George Simpkin worried about his forwards and his scrum-half. The primary concern is whether half-back Stephen Kidd will be 100 per cent fit. It will be touch and go for Kidd, who is struggling to shake off an ankle injury he incurred in the second match on the South African leg of the tour last Friday. Kidd, who fell awkwardly on his right ankle, has heavily bruised his ligaments. Intensive treatment from team physio Joy Walter has put Kidd on the road back to recovery. But it is a long and painful one. ''My ankle feels okay when I walk, but at the moment it hurts when I do anything more,'' said Kidd, while doing some light training on Tuesday morning. Physiotherapist Walter said: ''He is improving daily. But at the end of the day, it will be up to him to decide whether he will be comfortable or not, he has torn a lot of tissues around the ankle.'' Simpkin, who can ill afford to miss out on his star scrum-half, has taken a gamble and named Kidd in the Test lineup which is virtually the same side which scored a convincing 34-3 win over the Combined Maritzburg XV in Durban. ''If Kidd cannot carry on, I'm afraid of what will happen to us,'' said Simpkin. ''We just don't have another half-back of his quality.'' While Kidd is the main worry, Simpkin is also concerned about the fitness of his forwards. ''They are tired and will be operating at about 80 per cent. It is a big worry and I hope they can lift their game,'' said Simpkin. Four of them - Roger Patterson, Dave Lewis, Tony Hunt and Stuart Krohn - have featured in all three games on tour so far. Hunt left the field early in the second half against the Namibia Under-23 side and was replaced by Rick Shuttleworth. The territory will be up against their strongest opposition on tour. Only three of the team to take on Hong Kong did not play in Africa's World Cup qualifying matches held in June in Casablanca. Namibia failed to qualify losing to eventual qualifiers Ivory Coast (12-13), beating Zimbabwe (25-20) and drawing with Morocco (16-16). The main threat is likely to come from a mobile back row and a very potent backline, with skipper Gerhard Mans on the wing, the most experienced and dangerous player in the side. Hong Kong will have to watch out for the counter-attack, make sure they get their kicks to touch in, and also make tackles count. These were a few aspects the territory were not up to scratch against the Namibia U-23s. Thankfully, the forwards are firing. And if they can lift their game to another plateau, Namibia's proud record of having beaten top visiting teams like Wales and Ireland, can be dented. And while it would give Hong Kong a perfect ending to their enterprising South African voyage, the territory can also look forward to October's World Cup qualifying Asian championships, with renewed enthusiasm. TEAMS Hong Kong: Justin Weston, Ashley Billington, Rodney McIntosh, Vaughan Going, Isi Tu'ivai, Robin Bredbury, Stephen Kidd, Ashley Jones, Andy Fields, Dave Lewis, Grant Jamieson, Roger Patterson, Tony Hunt, Rick Shuttleworth Stuart Korhn (captain).
