March 1995 – Manila 10s & HK 7s

manilla95

For our first visit to the Philippines (as the Tokyo BaBas) we were seeded 16th. Out of 16 teams. Undetered we managed three wins from three on day 1 to leave ourselves well positioned for the knockout competition on day 2. Our quarter-final oppo, the Camden Rams, had looked tough on Saturday, but had clearly partied as hard as they had played that day, and were not on good form. The semis were no problem, and we ended up facing the hosts – the Manilla Nomads in the final. A stunning interception from Fuk Ping (soon afterwards to play for the HK 7s team) and a man-of-the-tournament performance from Phil Drury were enough to wrap up the game and our first title.
