Kowloon Rugby Club
Mens Elite Squad
Our elite program lead by coach Joe Barker is made up of both a Premiership and Premiership A team who compete in the two top tiers of Hong Kong Rugby. The Saxo capital Market premiership consists of the 6 best teams in Hong who battle it out for the league cup and Grand championships come the back end of the season. Consisting of Hong Kong rugby’s top players Kowloon has seen some of its members go on to represent and captain Hong Kong throughout the year. Current squad members, Jack Neville, James Cunningham, Bryn Phillips, Lewis Warner, Jamie Tsang and the newly professionally contracted player James Sawyer all train full time for Hong Kong whilst representing Kowloon at the weekend. Our Prem A team continues to make strides in the second tier of Hong Kong rugby reaching the play offs for the first time in 5 years.
Ladies Elite Squad
Our Women’s section consists of two teams competing in the Premiership and National League 2 of Hong Kong’s domestic leagues. Exciting times lie ahead for our ladies’ teams with the newly appointed coach Terry Sibanda taking over the premiership team and looking to build on the excellent 18/19 season our ladies had by reaching the play offs.

Mens Development Squad
Our Mens Development Squads consist of three teams named the Brothers, Babaas and beats who compete in NL1 , CL1 and CL2 of the Hong Kong Community Leagues. The 2018/19 season saw 8 graduates from development rugby step-up to senior rugby by the end of the season and proves to be a competitive environment where players can develop quickly. For more information on playing at this level please contact email@example.com
If it’s a fun and more relaxed nature you’re after, then the Beavers social team is for you. Concerned that training will negatively impact performance on the pitch, pre-game tactics are discussed in the warm up with a solid debrief taking place in the club house post 80 minutes. Our social team welcomes players of all abilities and offers a great experience for anyone interested.

Kowloon Stingrays Academy
Kowloon Rugby Club has an established U19 Boys Rugby Academy which offers opportunities for players to continue to grow and reach their rugby potential. The program completes the youth pathway and helps players transition into senior rugby. The academy plans to create both a Premiership and Championship squad to allow all playing abilities to development and excel. The program is inclusive and welcomes all players graduating from an U'16 youth team, who wish to challenge themselves and enjoy the camaraderie and benefit of joining an academy environment.
Not only is the U19 Academy an ideal pathway for players graduating from the Sai Kung Stingrays, but an ideal pathway to senior rugby for any players located in Hong Kong. With training taking place in a central location, Kings Park and led by HK Rugby International Jamie Tsang we are excited about another quality season from our U'19s team!
