Hong Kong Sevens

My fisheye view of the Hong Kong Stadium, at the 'Hong Kong Sevens' (day #1) 2011.

 

This was a great event - some say the event of the year in Hong Kong - and everybody was having a great time. The rugby game itself didn't seem to be that important - having fun was.

 

I also noticed, as I left the venue in the evening, that this is where ALL non-Chinese in Hong Kong go at this time of year. There was a never ending stream of white guys (ok, and some girls) exiting the stadium!

 

My summary of the games played on this, the first of three days of rugby:

- Japan lost :(

- Team New Zealand were cool and super strong!

- Team Hong Kong had amazing support but lost . . .
