Seems to have been a pretty close match, with SA pulling into a 16-0 lead but Philippines pulling it back to 16-12 before the end of the first half. The difference in the score being down to the Tamaraws being unable to convert any of their tries.
The second half continued in a similar vein, with SA going a couple of scores ahead and Philippines pulling closer. The Rhinos never really looked in danger of losing, at which point the Tamaraws clawed their way to within 4 points and took the game right down to the wire, but the South Africans ultimately managed to hold out for the victory.
A good win for South Africa, and a great effort from The Philippines in their closest ever game
I've set up this site after I realised that there isn't really anywhere that collates all the international fixtures. There's a site that I used to use, but as of typing this they still only have 4 fixtures listed for the year, none of which are in Europe and don't even include the England/NZ series at the end of the year.
Because of this, I figured that if you want something doing, you might as well do it yourself and in just over a day I've managed to collate 30 fixtures together, and at least I now have a central place I can see these at. If nothing else, this site will help me decide on potential holiday dates/locations.
I'll try to keep this as up-to-date as I can, and there are a few more things I've got in the pipeline.
