Hong Kong is a small island nation off the south coast of the People’s Republic of China. Although small, it has a population of over 7 million people and is considered one of the Economic epicentres of Asia, if not the world! It is known for its big skyline buildings, deep harbour, home of Martial Arts legend Bruce Lee and thousands of businesses from around the globe. It has also hosted many international sporting events such as the IRB Rugby 7s, East Asian Games, Olympics, Tennis and Football tournaments.
Hong Kong Rugby League's preparations for the largest festival of Rugby League in the region continues to build strongly with interest from the locals exceeding initial expectations.
The Festival will see the HKRL run it's first ever Nines and Mixed Tag Tournament as the league looks to establish an appetite for the code in the country.
