NEWS: Springbok flyhalf Pat Lambie is set to face his former Sharks teammates in Hong Kong in February.

The Sharks confirmed on Monday that they will play French club Racing 92 at the Aberdeen Sports Ground in Hong Kong on 3 February.

"We can't wait for #OurSharks first game in Hong Kong as we take on Racing 92 at the Aberdeen Sports Ground on 3 February!" the Durban-based franchise said in a statement on social media.

The Sharks will use the outing as a Super Rugby warm-up.

It is not sure if Racing will be able to field a full-strength team - given their domestic and European commitments, as well as their contribution to the French national team for the Six Nations.

However, Lambie's presence in the Racing team will be a major drawcard.

He will face the Sharks for the first time since moving to Racing earlier this year - following almost a full year on the sidelines with two consecutive bouts of concussion and other injury setbacks.

The 27-year-old Lambie played more than 100 games for the Sharks - 70-odd in Super Rugby.

The Aberdeen Sports Ground has a capacity of 9,000 and is the home of Hong Kong Premier League club Southern.

The franchise also revealed a number of significant signings on their social media.
