Robbie McRobbie

Robbie joined the HKRFU in 2003 after 11 years with the Hong Kong Police Force and is currently the head of rugby operations. A driving force behind the game in Hong Kong, Robbie’s experience touches on nearly every aspect of local rugby from the senior and tertiary game, touch rugby, facilities and IT, to tournament operations and support services. As such, there isn’t much around the local scene in which Robbie hasn’t been involved, making him a real authority on the game in Hong Kong.
