EXCERPT:

Sandy Bay give Valley a fright before losing in Hong Kong Premiership

The Premiership new boys are clearly the improved team of the season as they push the defending champions right to the whistle at King’s Park on Saturday.

Herbert Smith HKU Sandy Bay are clearly sick of losing. The new side in the Hong Kong’s men’s premiership won only one game last season (playing under the Hong Kong Cricket Club banner), and lost their opening match of the season last weekend to Natixis HKFC.

This week things were a bit different as they pushed perennial powerhouse and six-time defending grand championship final winners Societe Generale Valley right to the whistle in their second game of the season, but ended up losing 38-22 at King’s Park on Saturday. The team spent a fair portion of the game in Valley’s territory, showing improvement on both offence and defence.

Down by only two points at half, Sandy Bay have clearly improved their squad from last season under second year coach Brett Wilkinson, grinding hard against Valley and supported by a loud cheering section Saturday afternoon at Kings Park.
