Hong Kong Residents XIIIEdit
The Hong Kong Residents XIII was a representative team made by the Hong Kong Rugby League to give open-age players who currently reside in Hong Kong the opportunity to help develop Rugby League throughout Asia. Whilst not the International Representative team of Hong Kong, the Residents team gave an opportunity for a number of players in the Thunder to develop.
The Residents have had three tours since their formation in 2015, touring the Philippines twice, and Thailand once.
