Gai Wu Rugby Football Club
    In 1987 forming an "ALL Asian" rugby team to take on the bastion of British Colonial expats in their prised Rugby 7's tournament was received with great "amusement" by the sceptical, and great support by those that had lived in Hong Kong long enough to feel a bonding to the local community. In this game of Rugby, size does matter. Taking on the name "GAI WU" was significant for the All Asians in that it was a Mah-Jong term, meaning to win, though with a lower hand of cards, thus upsetting potentially big winners by preempting their next move; making it possible to win with a lower hand. This they did well, knocking many teams out as they stormed on to the Semi Finals of the Cup Division before bowing out to eventual winners Police in the 1987 Blarney Stone 7's competition.

     From these humble and against the grain beginnings, Hong Kong now flourishes with many Chinese and Asian players where Gai Wu had set the example.
