Benny The Axe Chops Down Cricket Club


Ben Axten-Burrett led a spirited fight back as Natixis HKFC Club beat Hong Kong Cricket Club in a thrilling game, 31-28.  Cricket Club led all of the way through the game until the final couple of minutes when Club snatched victory with a four try bonus point to boot.

Ben Axten-Burrett picked up two tries, one in each half and also set up the try for winger Charlie Higson-Smith with a deft cross field kick to the corner.

The tries came from full back Jamie Lauder and the winning try from number eight Marcus Slade who got his just rewards for carrying hard all game.
HKFC Head Coach, commented 'that was a big five point win for us.  Our defensive effort in the first half was a bit off but that was largely to be expected as we had an illness running through the team and only couple of the guys had just got off the plane so it took them a while to get up to speed.'
'We also got confirmation from the HKRU that we'll receive the points from the cancelled Cricket Club game earlier in the season so we've picked up ten league points this week and we move on to a massive game against Valley this Saturday, who are now just four points above us.'
'Our backs played with a lot of fluency and sharpness this week and we are undoubtedly benefitting from having a settled backline since certain injuries have cleared up.  Cricket Club are always a good side but once our forwards clicked into gear in the second half we looked in very good shape.'

Natixis HKFC Select blew away the Christmas cobwebs producing a disciplined performance to beat University 5-44.  Tries came from Raif Morrison, Bobby Jones, John Oven, Rupert Gerald and a Simon Bourke double.
Head Coach Tony George commented, 'I was expecting a bit of rustiness after the Christmas break but we played well against an understrength University side.  We've got league leaders HK Scottish next week which will no doubt be tough but there's a good felling in the camp.  We'll give it our best shot.'

No Christmas hangover for Natixis HKFC Select, who are tight as a team

The only other men's game saw Natixis HKFC Bulls beat Cricket Club, 24-15, in the eary kick off at HKFC.  A game which saw many of the old boys turn out for Clint Borle's last game before he departed for his new life in America.

Natixis HKFC Ice got back to winning ways with a 29-8 win against Comvita City Sparkle.  Tries came from Jamie Ho, Bobby Wilson, Royce Chan and a double for Rose Fong.
