Hong Kong Supper Report: Dateline 27 March 2008
Ian Howard reports: The Rugby Sevens/SOF Hong Kong Supper is now officially over and our livers are much the worse for it! It was a shame that England couldn't manage to beat Samoa twice (once was hard enough) and crashed out in the Quarter Finals.

Click on Read More for the gory details. The Supper at the Hong Kong Club was attended by seven OFs (Mike Cundy (K61-64) and his sons James(Z90-97) and Nick (Z90-97), John Birt (S59-63), Richard Dolan (G87-92), Ed Marr (G85-92) and myself (S57-62)). The food and wine at the HK Club was excellent and we exchanged some very humorous memories of the College before joining several thousand partygoers in one of HK's well-known entertainment districts.

This photo shows the attendees prior to the Supper. From left to right they are Richard Dolan, Ian Howard, Edward Marr, John Birt then James, Mike and Nick Cundy.

Spot the difference in the "after" picture below? Rumour has it that one or two 'entertainers' were spotted wearing OF ties later that evening on Lockhart Road! I started the evening with 10 and finished with four!

Below follows the original story asking for OFs to come to this event:
