The Singapore Skyllas Rugby Club will travel to the Philippines for the annual Transcom International Development Series. The International Development Series takes place this Saturday November 25th, at Southern Plains Sports Field, Canlubang, Laguna.
The match will be hosted by Philippine Rugby and will be the third year for the event.
This year, the Singapore Bedoks as they are more commonly known, will be sending two teams to face the Philippines National Development teams, a team composed of players form different regions in Metro Manila, Davao, General Santos and Cebu.
The development matches have seen victories from both teams, Singapore winning in 2014, and the Philippines winning in 2016. Women’s rugby is fast growing in Asia which serves the main purpose of this development series.
“Im very excited about the upcoming games. The girls have been working hard for the last five weeks and are coming together really well. We have a lot of pace and power across the squad and if we can function well as a team and nail our core roles in the contact area then I think the ladies will get the result they are looking for” said Christopher Arpon Bird, Head Coach.
Bird is also a current Men’s National Player, playing for the Philippine Volcanoes. Rassiel Sales, who’s has played in the last two series shared “This series is more exciting with the entry of our new players who are displaying passion, commitment and hard work. It has gotten all of us even more pumped up for the coming games”
