Asian Championships Team Profiles - Part One

Just a note on China...

The China Blues had their Asian Championships debut in Singapore 2002, and backed up again in Hong Kong 2003... up to where the story picks up in KL 2004.

The team in 2002 had a large contingent from Shanghai including Gaelic players, a few guys from Beijing and a handfull of guys scraped together from around the region to give us a full squad.

When Malaysia pulled out, they gave us 7 more players to allow us the numbers for a bench !!! (important in 33 degrees 99% humidity, when playing 3 games in a day).

In 2003 the team was more of the same from China (Shanghai mostly + a few Beijing, a few others and extras from Indonesia & HK).
