bc magazine issue 1- the first bcene… who do you know/remember?
Quite unbelievably it’s 20 years ago today that the first issue of bc magazine arrived from the printers. Over the years a lot of people have contributed to bc’s success and as publisher, I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing writers, designers, sales and do anything staff and enjoyed the support of lots of advertisers – without whom none of this would have been possible. Thank you!

The ‘Unicorns’ are a group of determined, dynamic, sophisticated (and magical) rugby playing girls who enjoy the competitiveness of the 10’s league. Since our formation in 2010, we have had a variety of different nationalities in the herd, each bringing with them diversity, experience, a range of intelligence and the odd cooled beverage.
As a team, we aim to work together to achieve success. With steady performances in the league over the last few seasons and local beach rugby competitions, the team is growing in stature and skill. The many social events the club provides also add to the sense of unity within the team, with annual tour being the highlight for many players.
We warmly invite anyone who wishes to gain rugby experience to join with us – whether complete beginner or experienced player there will be a place for you in our team. Feel free to contact us with any further questions!
Toulouse and Racing Métro will be returning to Hong Kong this November for a ‘friendly’ match. Toulouse coach Guy Novès confirmed the fixture would be taking place for a second consecutive year. Toulouse ran out 19-12 winners in 2013.
Former Toulouse wing Hosea Gear told AFP after last year’s victory “Today was also about spreading the brand of both our clubs. It was a no-holds-barred game and both teams didn’t take penalties as the idea was to play as expansive a game as possible,” .
The timing of the fixture on November 15, means that leading internationals for both teams will be unavailable due to the Test matches taking place that month.
