Eversfield stars on Hong Kong debut
THE Marlburian Club would like to congratulate Will Eversfield (C3 2007-12) who made his debut for Hong Kong on Friday night.
Eversfield represented England Students whilst at Newcastle University, but following a move to Hong Kong in July to play for Borrelli Walsh USRC Tigers – he found himself stepping up a level.
The Hong Kong born forward started in the second row for Hong Kong’s Cup of Nations opener against Papua New Guinea – starring in a 51-5 victory. Click here to watch the match.
Hong Kong assistant coach Andy Hall was pleased with the OM’s efforts.
“He’s integrated well, he’s quite a smart kid so he’s taking things on quickly,” Hall told the South China Morning Post.
“He ran the line-outs today and our ball was certainly successful. For him to come in that quickly and adapt and then perform how he did was really pleasing to see.”
Hong Kong now face Russia on Saturday in the final game of the tournament.
