Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Saturday, 28 March 2009

There were no major upsets on the first day of the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens on Friday. Kenya in Pool F, kicked off the action in a rather damp Hong Kong at 16:30, with a 17 - 10 victory over the West Indies.

The quietest of the three day event was by no means without its thrills, with the vastly improved United States team pushing Scotland all the way to lose by just 2 points, with the Pool F game ending 17 - 19. Samoa, in Pool E, made hard work of Canada but ended the game with a 14 - 10 victory.

All the Hong Kong Sevens tournament favourites ended the day with victories, with England, in Pool B, thumping China 54 - 0, Wales managing a 14 - 5 victory over the always resilient Japan, while South Africa beat Korea 29 - 7 and France beat Uruguay 17 - 5 in the Pool A games.

In Pool C, New Zealand showed why they are one of the best Rugby playing nations on earth giving Sri Lanka a 54 - 0 masterclass. Australia also piled on the points beating Zimbabwe 33 - 5.

Argentina, in Pool D, looked convincing against the home side Hong Kong, winning 28 - 0 while in the other pool game Portugal lost 5 - 17 to Tonga.

Fiji in Pool E along with Canada and arch rivals Samoa, managed a clean sheet beating Chinese Taipei 33 - 0.

So that is the first day over, and now the real fun begins, so make sure you read the Hong Kong Sevens Day 2 - Saturday, 28 March 2009.
