Hong Kong rugby is blessed with numerous champions of the game, and sadly this year we say Noho Ora Mai to Deano, one of the greatest. After 25 years in the Fragrant Harbour, Deano has made the tough decision to relocate back to his home country, New Zealand, leaving a big hole in our rugby community.
Deano has been critical to our relationship with Valley RFC and the pros, coaching our parent coaches, running numerous Youth teams and generally to promoting the club and indeed the sport across Hong Kong for many years. For so many people, when they think of Deano, they think of Valley and Valley Fort , which is something we should all be proud of. Good luck for the next chapter back in NZ.
