The depth is pretty good considering the number of players involved.
Read again and you'll see that I wasn't commenting in the slightest on the comparative standard in New Zealand and England; I was saying that a good Grade player who hasn't quite made it in Australia would be good enough to do OK in either. QED!

I'd wondered where Chapman had disappeared to-he was one of Hong Kong's best players at a stupidly young age (several of his team-mates were old enough to be his dad..almost
grandad!) but hasn't played for them since April 2011. I guess he's relocated, in which case he's got to be a future FC player. I hope he gets some "A" games this season.
