Worcester Warriors back row Jake Abbott and the rest of the England Sevens squad were welcomed to Hong Kong yesterday (Tuesday) by their fans.
The squad flew in from Adelaide where they won the Bowl, beating Kenya 33-12, in preparation for the next leg of the IRB World Series, the Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens (26-28 March).
England supporters welcomed the squad at a special event where they met their heroes and got pictures and autographs with their favourite players.
England face hosts Hong Kong on Friday night before taking on China and Wales on Saturday.
The team will have another chance to meet their fans on Thursday when they hold an open training session for an England Rugby Travel party.
Ben Ryan's side are now fifth in the Series and will be looking to boost their tally this weekend before their home event, the Emirates Airline London Sevens on May 22 & 23.
Hong Kong Sevens fixtures:
March 26, England v Hong Kong, kick off 5.58pm local time (GMT+8)
March 27, England v Japan, kick off 2.10pm local time (GMT+8)
March 27, England v Wales, kick off 6.34pm local time (GMT+8)
Worcester Warriors' long-term vision to become an established Aviva Premiership Club has been given a significant boost after concluding an agreement with Worcester Rugby, the group that runs amateur club Worcester Wanderers Rugby Club, over the usage of the whole of the Sixways Stadium site.
