The Fat Boy 10s Rugby Tournament in Clark Field, Angeles City, (4-5 September 2009) is the fun rugby competition in the Philippines for the larger than life rugby players who are (mostly) past their sell-by date. Rugby stars of yesteryear, from around the World, make guest appearances to thrill the crowds with their skills and sign autographs. This year you can expect to see: Doddie Weir, legendary Scottish International and Joe Shaw, England and Newcastle Falcons.

Fat Boy 10s rugby is rugby union with a cause. Money raised from the rugby weekend is used to help street children find a roof over their head and healthy recreation throughout the rest of the year.

UPDATED 04/07/2009

Finals match (04/07/09) full-time score: Philippines 25 - Guam 0. Although the win was a clear demonstration of the skill and stamina of the Philippine rugby team, the score line does not reflect the tenacity of the Guamanians who nevertheless came very close to scoring in the closing minutes of the game. Team Philippines now move up to Division 2 of Asian 5 Nations Rugby.

Due to a late venue change, Nomad Sports Club is now hosting the first ever Division 3 Asian 5 Nations Rugby Tournament on Saturday, 4th July. Americans also welcome!

There are large crowds expected for this first ever at Nomad Sports Club so come early to secure your spectator spot for the Asian 5 Nations Rugby Tournament and support the best of the Philippine National Rugby Team.

If you have not been to the Nomad Sports Club for a while then you will be pleased to know that you no longer run the risk of getting lost in Merville Park (just South of the airport) and missing the game. You can go direct to the Nomad Sports Club's new entrance along Moonwalk
