Hong Kong’s men regained the Asia Rugby Under-20 Sevens Series crown in emphatic style at King’s Park on Saturday, with Fong Kit-fung the star of the show.

Hong Kong defeated Sri Lanka 36-0 in the final, with Fong staking his claim for a spot in Paul John’s senior team for the upcoming Asia Rugby Sevens Series with a dominant two days.

It’s been a rapid rise for 19-year-old Fong, who is training with Hong Kong’s senior team at the Sports Institute.

“In the last year he has come from Tin Shui Wai club rugby, been part of the Warriors programme, then was engaged in the national age grade programme and he’s just worked his socks off and he’s now got that opportunity with the SI programme,” Hong Kong under-20 assistant coach Stephen Dowse said.

“In terms of a player who has shown what’s possible by hard work and dedication and really wanting it, he’s come from nowhere really to now be in the men’s sevens programme.”
