Info/News: Japanese star lends locals a hand – Taipei Times

Last Saturday was the 2014 Chinese Taipei Touch Tournament.  One of the players, playing for Taipei’s Team Hukit, was Hide Nara.  Hide is a member of the Japan national team, and is currently living the dream – traveling the world playing touch.

Having Hide (or Hitch, as he is also known) at the tournament was a huge boost to Touch in Taiwan.  Not only did he wow us with his skills and steps, but Hitch was also selfless in sharing his knowledge of the game with anyone who asked.  When he wasn’t playing or refereeing, Hitch could be seen teaching plays to team mates, helping others improve their passing and catching skills, or simply pass on small little pointers that certainly helped to boost the level of everyone’s game.

There was an article published on the tournament in yesterday’s Taipei Times Newspaper.  You can also follow Hide’s travels at his blog (in Japanese only) www.narahide.com.

In the Mixed Open Division, Pacific Island Dragons beat out Taichung Swingers (or was it Spinners) in semi-final 1 and Team HUKIT defending against a fierce challenge from Taipei Baboons.
在男女混合公開組的半決賽1,太平洋島火龍隊擊敗了臺中Swingers, 而HUKIT在半決賽2擊退了臺北猴王隊及激烈攻擊。

The final was played out between Pacific Island Dragons and Team HUKIT, with HUKIT drinking out of the victor’s trophy.
決賽由太平洋島火龍隊挑戰2012年9月的衛冕冠軍HUKIT隊。可惜他們的球技和快攻不敵HUKIT隊,由HUKIT隊從冠軍獎盃嘗試到勝利的滋味。

4 Mixed Junior Teams entered with the final played out between 台中毛毛蟲兒童橄欖球隊 Taichung Caterpillars Junior Rugby Club Green and Tian Mu Irish after they defeated Taichung Caterpillars Whites and Taipei Angry Birds. Tian Mu Irish were victorious at the end.

Congratulations to Taichung Touch Rugby for organizing another successful tournament. Special thanks goes out to Jacob CurranDwayne Smith and everyone else involved for all their effort into making sure the day went smoothly. Congratulations to Taichung for bringing the Zhong-Bei Ball back to their city, and to Taipei Red (Team HUKIT) for winning the Cup.
Below is a wrap up written by organizer Jake.
恭喜臺中觸式欖球成功舉辦了臺中觸球錦標賽!我們需要特別感謝Jacob Curran,Dwayne Smith 以及其他

Congratulations to Taipei Red for Winning the Cup, and to Doulio for winning the Plate (by a 1 point try differential) at the 2014 Taichung Touch Tournament. The bonus point for including a female in the team really proved costly for 高雄 (Kaohsiung) and FCU in the Plate playoffs which meant Doulio managed to take it out. Juggernauts went into the Grand Final as 1st seed after drawing with Taipei Red in the Cup Playoff, but Taipei Red came back strong and took out the competition with 4 touch downs to Juggernauts 2 in the final match. Thanks to all the teams who traveled from other cities, thanks to the sponsors, and thanks to all those who helped out, you made the day a great success. Results are below, and full results are in the Google Doc: 恭喜台北紅色有贏,然後斗六贏Plate(一份而已)在我們2014台中Touch球賽。我們比賽需要女生的規定讓逢甲大學和高雄很難贏,但是他們兩個隊很壯,所以後來斗六有贏那個Plate。在那個Grand Final Juggernauts 本來是第一名,但是最後一個球賽台北紅色證明他們很壯有贏Juggernauts 4-2。謝謝每一隊從別城市來,謝謝我們的贊助謝謝每一個人都幫忙。結果在下面:

8th = Caterpillars
7th = 高雄
6th = FCU
Plate winner = Doulio
4th = Taipei Blue
3rd = Beefeaters
2nd = Juggernauts
Cup winner = Taipei Red

Event: Taichung Touch Tournament
