Former Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU) National Player Development Manager Kane Jury has been appointed as the Menís Sevens coach at the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI) Elite Rugby Sevens programme.

In his four-year tenure at the HKRFU, Jury has also served as the coach of the Hong Kong National Womenís Sevens Team and as a support staff to the Menís Sevens squad.

Jury completes a highly experienced trio of coaches at the HKSI joining the previously announced coaching team of former Wales Sevens coach Gareth Baber and renowned womenís rugby international Anna Richards.

Baber will serve as the overall programme head coach working with Richards and Jury to improve performance in both the womenís and menís sevens athletes respectively. Baber will also serve as the HKRFU Senior Menís Sevens squad coach.

ďKane has been an integral part of the HKRFU Performance Department for the last four years,Ē said Dai Rees, HKRFU Head of Technical Development and Performance. ďHe will bring an enormous amount of local systemsí and player knowledge to his new role with the HKSI that will help compliment the appointment of both Gareth and Anna from their positions overseas.Ē

For his part, Jury is relishing the opportunity ahead. ďIíve been in Hong Kong for eight years now and have been working with the HKRFU High Performance department for the last four years where I have learned a lot. That opportunity has opened up new challenges for me like joining the Sports Institute and I am really excited to be faced with this opportunity,Ē said Kane Jury. ďI am keen to work alongside Gareth and Anna on a personal level and I know that I can learn a lot from them. I think that I can also help them fulfill their objectives as I have a unique understanding of the menís and womenís sevens players and can help impart that to the coaching team ... Itís hugely exciting to be a part of what is potentially an Olympic process now.Ē

Juryís tenure at the HKSI began on 6 January 2014.
