HKTag Challenge is an annual one-day tournament, which sees up to 12 teams compete for the coveted HKTag Challenge title. The event usually takes place in May at King’s Park Sports Ground, Kowloon, alongside the Hong Kong Rugby League 9s tournament.
The 2018 HKTag Challenge, which took place on Sunday 27 May 2018, was won by Bacchus in a tightly-fought final against Kingfish.
Neville Metcalfe, Chairman HKRL and HKTag, said,
“I couldn’t be more thrilled with the turnout this year – our biggest HKRL Nines and HKTag Challenge tournament yet. The best part for me is that for, the first time ever, we were able to put on a hugely successful women’s rugby league game, won by Hong Kong North.
Tag rugby is an ideal entry point for rugby league – for both men and women – and this year’s Redsip HKTag Challenge demonstrates just how far we have come in achieving our mission to develop a diverse and supporting sporting community.
I want to congratulate the Redsip HKTag Challenge winners – Bacchus – and express a huge thanks to the HKTag volunteers, our sponsors, the referees and of course all the players for helping make this event an overwhelming success!”
