HK Sevens debuts... Kung Fu rugby?!
You’ve heard of Shaolin Soccer.
Or Eric Cantona's notorious kung fu kick
But what about Kung Fu rugby?
Fans at the Hong Kong Sevens got a sneak peek at what a rugby-kung fu hybrid would look like.
With the help of beer-sponsor Carlsberg, the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union assembled a group of martial artists and sent them to undergo a secret training camp in China.
The result is a combination of back-flips and somersaults on a rugby field.
Frankly, it is more balletic and acrobatic than a full-on Jet Li-style display of martial arts.
But then it's no less entertaining for it, and rugby is brutal enough without introducing more ways to disable the opposition.
See it for yourself.
