Mini Rugby - Lantau Island Style

This weekend was the first training session ever of the Lantau Buffalos Mini Rugby Club. An official HKRFU club and one of the few in Hong Kong that can actually boast having its own playing field! Well to be fair, the field is a football pitch that had fallen into disuse and thanks to the tremendous efforts of some the grass was cut back to make it useable once more. (you can see the height it had grown too to the sides of the pitch!) Quite surprisingly some 35 children were signed up, boys and girls and a real mix of languages too. Any referee who tries to sort out this lot out will need to be pretty well educated. Despite several pitch invasions and a sit in by some sponsors, see pictures that follow, it was a great start.
