Cavite, Philippines - The third and final leg of the 2022 Globe 7s Series Luzon - Open & Women's Divisions will kick off this weekend, 22 October 2022, at Philippine Rugby's home ground, the Ayala Vermosa Sports Hub. Five teams from leg 2 are back to compete for the leg 3 Open Division title, with Eagles RFC poised to win the overall season trophy for their back to back festival wins on legs 1 & 2. The return of tournament favorites leg 1 finalists Clark Jets, and the entry of Manila Carabaos will make leg 3 interesting for the 7 teams. A number of key players from the top teams are away this weekend for National Team duties.
Expect strong challenges from leg 2 runners up, the Manila Nomads, and semi finalists, SKF Makati Mavericks. Manila Hapons and the Ibons are also both aiming to improve on their 4th and 5th place finishes from leg 2. The Manila Carabaos, a developmental side from the Manila Nomads Rugby Club, will be looking to prove that they also belong with the big boys of the premier division.
In the Women's Division, the Eagles RFC and the SKF Makati Mavericks are on a tight race for the overall season trophy. However, a number of key players from both squads are also away for National Team duties so it will be a wide open race for the leg 3 championship for the 5 teams competing. The return of the Clark Jets women will also make the competition unpredictable, and a much improved Manila Rogues side will look to finish strong this 7s season as well. The SKF Makati Mavericks Franky team will also back from leg 1 to challenge for the leg 3 title.
It will be a full day of rugby on Saturday and we invite families, friends, and supporters to come and cheer for their favorite teams.
