Rashneel Kumar In Hong Kong
Wednesday, March 26, 2014

ROCKY Khan is aiming to get back in the New Zealand 7s side and achieve his dream of playing in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The nippy playmaker featured in a couple of tournaments for the All Blacks 7s side in the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series.

Khan, whose dad is a Fijian of Indian descent and his mother Rotuman, said he had been working on reclaiming his spot in the team.

"Just playing for the Auckland club rugby for Ponsonby at the moment. We had a pre-season tournament last week and we won that, so it's always a good start," the 24-year-old Aucklander said.

"Apart from training and rugby, getting into a bit of studies as well, trying to finish off my degree in sports and recreation at AUT.

"Just enjoy playing rugby and going out having fun doing what I love, whatever happens, happens after that."

Khan will be feature for Borneo Eagles in the Hong Kong Tens tournament which starts today, and he said he was looking forward to the challenge.
