Pasig City, Philippines - After a successful opening round of the 2023 PRFU Luzon Rugby Cup on April 29, 2023, the Manila Kalabaws, Manila Rogues, Eagles RFC, and match day hosts, the Santos Knight Frank (SKF) Makati Mavericks, are back in action this weekend for the second round of the 15s season. These teams will be showcasing their skills in the Women's Division, Men's Championship Division, and Men's Premiership Divisions. The tournament will be held again at the prestigious Ultra PhilSports Complex in Pasig City on May 20, 2023.
In the Championship Division, co-captains Dylan Angeles and Carl Magtanong, will lead the Manila Kalabaws against Larcel Caparos, John Denmer Usman, and the rest of the SKF Makati Mavericks team at the opening match kicking off at 9:00 am. The Kalabaws will be eager to bounce back from their opening day lost to La Liga but the young Mavericks team will be looking to start strong this season.
The Women's Division will see the Manila Rogues go up against the 2019 JML 15s defending champions, the SKF Makati Mavericks, at 11:00 am. The Rogues kicked off their season on April 29, and will have the momentum against the SKF Makati Mavericks team. The Mavericks will be missing a number of key players though, as they will be in Bangkok this weekend representing the Philippine Rising Stars at the South East Asia (SEA) Rugby 7s tournament leg 2. However, expect veteran captain Sylvia Tudoc to lead from the front and guide her team mostly composed of new players.
The last match of the day at 1:00 pm will be another exciting battle between fierce rivals, the SKF Makati Mavericks and the Eagles RFC. These teams are familiar with each other as they also went head to head in the previously concluded Manila 10s Cup championship finals, which was secured by the SKF Makati Mavericks. This match will be Eagles RFC’s first 15s match of the season.
Families, friends, and supporters are invited to watch the games live at the Ultra - Philsports Complex in Pasig City for #SaturdayIsRugbyDay! Matches will be recorded and uploaded on PRFU's YouTube channel the following week.
