Updates from Steve Tarrant - Director of Rugby
Well no rugby last weekend but I was lucky enough to get over to Macau and watch Pacquiao in action. What a great event that was and about 6 of the Breakthrough boxing guys were lucky enough to watch thanks to Danny Lawley and his contacts. They had a great time and better seats than me, so I was jealous !
On the subject of boxing there was a good piece of publicity for us through Breakthrough’s boxing section on Inside Story on Pearl last week.
The main star is Sures, who was very disappointed recently when his second pro fight got cancelled, especially as he had been training hard in the Philippines. Apparently another fight has been arranged for January and I will let you know all about it nearer the time.
In other news we recently had to postpone a game because of a schools sevens tournament and I am pleased to tell you that it was won by Choi Hung East Catholic Secondary School, which is mostly Breakthrough boys. The HKRFU website has a story about the victory -http://www.hkrugby.com/eng/news/3498.php
This weekend we have one match only at the Police Club on Sunday at 1pm. The U19s are playing Discovery Bay, who have some very good players We will have to be at our very best to beat them, so support would be welcome.
