Club win the Challenge Trophy


 


Club have claimed the inaugural Challenge Trophy after finishing on 21 competition points. Club secured 4 bonus point wins and a close loss over the course of the 5 game competition. This was equal with Valley but Clubs superior for and against was enough to be crowned winners .

 

The Challenge Trophy was initially planned as a pre season tournament but due to a forced postponement of the fifth and final round in early October, the outcome was unknown until the matches could be replayed over the weekend. The tournament was to help show case a wider range of talent at the Premier level. Club used close to 40 players across the 5 games and the Challenge Trophy helped Coach Wiggins mold his squad without the pressures of Premiership points on the line. 

 

The competition was reinforcement of a commonly held belief at HKFC that our greatest strength is our depth of talent. With the HKRU XV’s players only available for one game and the HKRU 7’s players none at all, it was a good opportunity for others to get their hands on the jersey and the results showed that the players are not keen to let go with lots and lots of strong performances week in and week out of the competition. 

 

The Challenge Trophy did not only come with a shiny cup but also a hefty winners purse of $60,000 after a very kind donation by the competition sponsors Saxo Capital Markets. The winnings will be shared out amongst the senior section adding to most teams social budgets which is always welcomed heading into the Xmas party season.

 

While coach Jack Wiggins and his squad are extremely proud of their efforts in the Challenge Trophy they have well and truly shifted their focus to the Premiership.

 

Club currently sit on top of the table with a 3 point lead as we head into the last 5 league matches. There are 3 big games before the Christmas break, then finishing off the league in January with remaining 2 matches before Chinese New Year. After the week off for CNY we hope to be straight back into with finals kicking off for the top 4 sides on February 1st.
