The 44th New Year’s Day Youth Tournament was successfully held at the Hong Kong Football Club today.

“It’s another successful and exciting tournament this year,” the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union Youth Director Mike Haynes enthused, “The event marks the start of another busy year for Hong Kong rugby and there's no better way to start the New Year than by joining the rugby action here today.”

The event culminated with the two boys matches that saw the national under 16s and under 18s up against overseas barbarians select teams for the George White Trophy and Wright-Nalyor/Middlesex Cup respectively and won the matches, and the under 19 girls match between Peninsula Dragons and Island Lions.

“The tournament has proved to be a great stage for young rugby players to show their skills and many have gone on to appear in national team colors,” Community Rugby Manager Brandon Huang commented, “Lots of current national players like Keith Robertson, Fan Shun Kei, Tsang Hing Hung and Mark Wright are good examples. Their fine skill level was first identified at the New Year's Day Tournament."

The tournament featured seven matches and the results are:

Larry Abel Trophy for Best and Fairest Player: Aidan Bradley, Hong Kong U16s
