Edlen Hernandez is a Filipino-American convert to rugby from American football. New to the game but looks like a talent.

Philippines have capped some local Pinoy players recently. They have a huge pool of overseas Filipinos to pick from though, so there will probably always be a number of ancestry-qualified players in the Volcanoes. The Philippines soccer team also has quite a few ancestry players, so it's not as much of an oddity as, say, UAE fielding an almost all Western team.

Asian Rugby is a farce


Out of interest: why doesn't Sri Lanka step up to the next level? I mean rugby is a very popular sport in Sri Lanka, right?


Before criticizing other countries, Sri Lanka must make its self-criticism. Develop the level of its players, put the means to play more test matches every year (including tours abroad), make its best players play abroad (in Japan or Malaysia, etc.). .). Without this the Tuskers will never advance and will remain behind Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea and others.

Strange that they aren't even playing in the same clubs apparently. Do locals and expats mix in Emirati clubs at all or is it just a coincidence?

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

UAE Shaheen is purely a development squad/team composed of UAE nationals only, players can move on to the clubs which play in the local leagues if they are good enough it seems

Cheers for the clarification. I was really wondering why they just come from one single club.

Halftime, Sri Lanka-Emirates 18-17 !
But I've just seen another lankan try at minute 48': Sri Lanka leading 25-17 now
Live streaming on https://www.facebook.com/asia.rugby/

Sri Lanka 33 Emirates 17 should be the final score, with bonus point for the lankans.

Just watching the last 15 minutes of Malaysia v Philippines (33 - 8 at the moment). Does anyone have any idea why the Malaysian hooker is wearing 10? Did he start at 10 and move to hooker - seems a bit bizarre.

The simplest explanation is that they are using a binary system, where 10 = 2 : )

Has either team stated whether they would challenge the loser of the top 3? Sri Lanka turned it down last year if i'm not mistaken.

Thanks. Does that mean there will still be relegation from Div 1? Assuming they keep 4 teams in the division and Div 2 winner is promoted as normal.

Still no news about the result of Jordan v Saudi Arabia. Judging by the smiles in the post match photo (Saudi are in green, Jordan in white) and by the absence itself of news by the Jordan federation, I bet Saudi Arabia won
