Clean sweep by Wayfoong and Hashtags sets up thrilling quarter finals

After another week of gripping matches at the HKTag Super League, the pool winners have been decided and the quarter finals draw is announced.

AIS Hashtags saw yet another win in Pool A to take a decisive lead and will play Mac n Tries in the first quarter finals of next week. Megan So stole the show with three tries in the first half, giving the
AIS Hashtags a six-point lead, which ultimately left Wan Chai Warriors unable to respond, despite scoring more tries overall.

In Pool B, Wayfoong (HSBC) beat Mac n Tries (Macquarie) and Toy Story, setting them up for the second quarter final next week, against Wolfpack.

After six rounds across August, Hong Kong has seen some epic tag rugby at the HKTag Super League, its biggest domestic tournament of the year. Next week’s finals will be the ultimate test, and there really is very little in it between the top teams.

Given such high standards of play, it isĀ of little surprise that many Super League players have got the call up for the Tag World Cup in November.
