28-06-2013-legacy2As part of their overall Lions sponsorship and legacy programme HSBC have teamed up with Rhino Rugby to donate two full sets of Lions training equipment to support grassroots rugby in both Hong Kong and in Sydney. The set left in Hong Kong, which includes a top of the range Rhino Dictator scrum machine in addition to a full range of contact and training equipment, was used last week in a training session for students of Lingnan University conducted by Salom Yiu Kam-shing and Kwok Ka-chun of the Hong Kong national Sevens team who are currently contesting the IRB Sevens World Cup in Moscow. Giles Morgan, Global Head of Sponsorship and Events, HSBC, was delighted the locals were able to benefit from the training equipment and commented: “HSBC is the proud Principal Partner of the British & Irish Lions, who are touring in Australia at the moment. The equipment we see here today has helped them as they worked towards the biggest moment in their sporting careers. We hope that our donation will also play a key part in the development of these youngsters’ rugby careers and their time with the Hong Kong team players this afternoon will inspire them to want to play rugby at a very high level.”
