Manila to host inaugural Philippines Nines

The Philippines National Rugby League has announced that Manila will host the inaugural Philippines Nines tournament later this year.

Home to the Manila Storm and North Manila Broncos, the Philippines capital will host the historic tournament on July 15.

All six Philippines National Rugby League clubs are expected to participate in the tournament, however with prize money on offer, the PNRL will be hoping to attract interest from sporting clubs beyond those run by the local Rugby League.

As an extra incentive for players taking part, the tournament will also act as a selection trial for the Philippines Tamaraws who are set to take part in the King’s Cup in Thailand later this year.
