Chinese Taipei Sevens Rugby Team

The Chinese Taipei national rugby union sevens is a minor national sevens side. They have competed in the Hong Kong Sevens since the 1980s.[1] In 1989, veteran rugby commentator Bill McLaren mentions them in an article on the Hong Kong Sevens, saying that their team had two Chi-Mings, a Yen-Ching, and a Chijen-Shuen, and that he was grateful that he did not have to broadcast all the names, as he had trouble remembering them.[2]
