Hong Kong name a 30-man squad for RWC Repechage

Kenya Simbas opponents Hong Kong have named their final 30-man squad for RWC 2019 Qualifiers Repechage set for Marseille, France.
Just like Kenya Simbas, the side has included several 7s players in the squad. Their 7s flyhalf Ben Rimene, utility back Jamie Hood and Hong Kong’s most capped international Nick Hewson who is a former 15s and sevens captain have all made the cut.
Hong Kong have picked Lock Jamie Cunningham as the captain for the tournament. The squad initially had 35 players but five have been dropped after the Wales trip.
Hong Kong will face Germany, Kenya and Canada with the winner of the four-team, round-robin tournament set to advance as the 20th and final team at the Rugby World Cup in 2019.
