Manila Rugby 10s returns for 30th staging

RUGBY enthusiasts, players and supporters are invited to participate in the upcoming Manila 10s 2018 International Rugby Festival this coming March 24 and 25 at the San Lazaro Leisure Park, Carmona, Cavite.

Tagged as the best social rugby tournament in the world, the rugby festival is expected to deliver heart-pounding and intense action as teams from different countries battle it out with their speed, strength and skill.

This will be the 30th Manila 10s International Rugby Festival and each year, the competition has continued to gather new fans and players to watch the sport. 

Only handful of local teams participated in the inaugural tourney in 1989. Thirty years later, more than 36 teams from around the world are joining the Manila 10s.

Clair Barberis, the Chairperson of Manila 10s, and Philippine Volcanoes’ David Feeney grace the PSA Forum. 
To compensate for their lack of height and heft, Filipinos have turned to their skill, creativity and speed to win against much bigger opponents, explained Clair Barberis, the Chairperson of Manila 10s, during her and the organizers’ appearance at the PSA Forum at the Tapa King in Araneta Center, Cubao.

Other than the games that will be played on the event, Mixed Touch Rugby will be added to the mix. There will also be a Touch Clinic for the neophytes of the sport to learn the basics of rugby.

Admission to the Manila 10s International Rugby Festival is free. Free shuttle service is also offered to fans.
