DEVELOPMENT programmes play a vital part in the success of any sport and it is this often neglected aspect which will give rugby a boost when the inaugural edition of the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) Premier Sevens is held on Feb 26-27. MCKK, once a hotbed of rugby activity in Perak, is presently experiencing a dip in fortunes but the 24-team tournament which will see the participation a school each from Singapore and Thailand is being counted upon to revive the sport in the sleepy royal town of Kuala Kangsar. After being ignored for nearly two decades, the MCKK Old Boys Association (MCOBA) decided to act and set up the All-Blacks revival (ABR) committee to brainstorm for ways to halt the decline. In picture:Cobra coaches have been assisting the MCKK team in training.
Ex-students honour ‘rugby man’ Source:http://www.nst.com.my/articles/08adr/Article/index_html 2010/04/15 IF not for Irishman Neil Joseph Ryan, the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) would not be renowned as a rugby powerhouse among Asian schools. It was this dashing man, then 30-something, better known as N.J. Ryan, who introduced the sport to the residential college students way back in 1959. Ryan, now 80, even donned Perak colours as a three-quarter centre, after playing for MCKK’s All-Blacks team (so called as their jersey and shorts were all black, just like that of the New Zealand national team). “I nearly died,” said Ryan. “The weather was so hot then. But eventually I got used to it.” The sport gained momentum as the students readily accepted rugby, thanks largely to teacher-coach Leong Siew Loong, who is now 69. “The boys played great rugby,” Ryan said, “beating local teams and going on to become the best school in Southeast Asia. Along the way, we even beat some of the giant schools from Sri Lanka and Thailand.” MCKK has held an annual rugby game with Vajiravudh College of Thailand since 1961. “Of course, owing to age, many of the ex-students now play golf,” he said. Ryan, who celebrated his 80th birthday on March 20, was the last Mat Salleh (expatriate) headmaster of MCKK, serving the institution from 1959 to 1965. Born to Irish parents, Ryan was introduced to the then Malaya when he was recruited by the British Military Administration to serve here during the Emergency period in 1948-49 to fight communist terrorists.
