The Philippines have just defeated Serbia 18-12 in Cabramatta, Australia after leading at half time in the first meeting between the two nations.
Canada will face the USA home and away over 2 legs for the Colonial Cup (with dates still TBC) and will take on South Wales Scorpions U20s at the start of October. There is also something special planned for 23rd July, which will be announced in the near future
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
