East African RFC make a return to the competition as loyal members making it the teams 6th appearance in the Hong Kong 10s. After a sensational 2018 campaign in which they almost beat eventual champions Gavekal before losing 10-7 in the pool stage, also drawing 12-12 with eventual Plate finalists A-Trade Overseas Old Boys.
