January 7, 2015 Updated: July 18, 2015

The Hong Kong Rugby Football Premiership starts again this coming Saturday Jan 10 with Round-11 of this 15-Round league with current leaders of the standings, Leighton Asia HKCC meeting Natixis HKFC at Sports Road, second placed Bloomberg HK Scottish take on Borrelli Walsh USRC Tigers at King’s Park and 3rd placed Societe Generale Valley play Abacus Kowloon, also at King’s Park.

With their win over HK Scottish on Dec 6, HKCC and their 5-points result against Kowloon in the last match before the break they now have a 1-point lead in the standings. HKCC will be looking to at least maintain this leading margin when they take on HKFC, but Club playing on their home turf and needing to protect their 4th place position will be trying their hardest to upset the leaders.

HK Scottish although playing away at King’s Park should prevail over the Tigers who struggled during the first half of the season and are bottom of the standings.

The Kowloon to Valley match will also be an important game for both teams, Valley will be hoping to close the gap on the leaders while Kowloon will be eager to get points to regain that important 4th spot from HKFC.
