Hong Kong ... the mecca of international sevens rugby.

... says Porteous.

Among the competitors, Fiji gained legendary status among the faithful after fully embracing the Sevens spirit during the 1998 competition.

Lancashire-born Peter Spiby ran the popular Hardy's Folk Club and was delighted when the Fijian team graced his bar with their presence on the Saturday evening.

However, his pleasure turned to concern when the players were still singing, dancing and knocking back rum and cokes in the early hours of Sunday morning. "The bar closed at 4am, when the boys finally retired to their hotel," Spiby says.

"Somehow, a few hours later they managed to play a quarter-final match, then went on to win the whole tournament. And that evening the team returned to Hardy's to celebrate."

By late Sunday afternoon the crowd is usually displaying Fijian levels of endurance. There is invariably a group trying in vain to get a Mexican wave going. There have been marriage proposals on the giant screen and a few people have been known to face the pitch.

And then it's all over. Frazzled fans trudge wearily home trying to think up ingenious excuses for calling in sick the next day.

Everyone agrees that it's been a great weekend – even if specifics are hard to recall.

As they say though, if you can remember what happened at the Hong Kong Sevens, you probably weren't there.

The Hong Kong leg of the IRB 7s have the highest number of points on offer to the teams that win the various categories of competition with the Cup winner raking a total of 30 points compared to the 20 points that is offered in other IRB WSS tournaments.

Fiji won a grueling final 26-24 to clinch a famous victory against South Africa at the Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens last season and the South Seas Islanders will once again be out to repeat their feat in Happy Valley this weekend.
