The presense of the Consul General Anne Jalando-On Louis at the Cabramatta International 9s tournament to watch her Philippines National Rugby League team win the Bowl Trophy left a good impression on her.

Refer to Rugby League's first ever press releases in local Philippines media it has her support all over it:

Touche Numero uno!

All these Filipino-Australian Rugby League players who played for the inagural Philippines National Rugby League team have grown up with Craig Wing as their role model. But he has been superceded by a new generation of Filipino-Australian Rugby League players that this younger generation worship:

Kevin Gordon of the Gold Coast Titans
http://www.titans.com.au/default.aspx?s ... eam=Titans

and Matt Srama also of the Gold Coast Titans & his nickname & hero is the Pacman :D himself
http://www.titans.com.au/default.aspx?s ... eam=Titans

BTW the Captain of the inagural Philippines National Rugby League team that won the Bowl Trophy last week is Matt Srama's brother Luke Srama & he had an awesome tournament scoring the winning try for us to win the Bowl Final!!!

Now Numero uno you have new Filipino-Australians playing top level Rugby League in Australia to follow!

Jaime Pimentel is considered to be one of Sydney’s Filipino community “elder statesman” and “community leader”. He migrated to Australia with the first wave of Filipino migration into the country in the 70’s so has seen 5 decades of change with the influx of Filipino migration into the country.

He came to support the inaugural Philippines National Rugby League team at the Cabramatta International 9’s last February wearing his vintage 70’s era Australian Kangaroos International Rugby League jersey – he considers himself “a true Rugby League believer”. Like so many Filipinos living in the ACT, Queensland & NSW, he has adopted Rugby League as his choice sport.

Jaime Pimentel is now in his 80’s, he needed assistance and support to come and watch his fellow countrymen in Australia play the sport he has come to love. As a previous reporter he still does free lance writing for local Filipino-Australian press. Watching a Philippines National Rugby League team on the “footie field” was a dream come true for him and this is his story:

Well "Numero uno" after the 1st round of the NRL competition the Titans are on top of the ladder :lol:

Early days yet I'm a West Tigers man myself until the NRL bring back my Mighty Bears on the Central Coast - keeping my fingers crossed for that one!!!

Hi "Caveat Emptor" U must have been a fly on the wall at the PNRL board meeting last Jan 11 :shock:

The PNRL symbol & logo will change at our April 14 board meeting so keep an eye on this post for the Philippines National Rugby League's new name.

BTW one of the names U have proposed is not an option we want "product diferentiation" from Rugby & 1 of the local Rugby clubs in the Philippines already has that name. We don't want local Pinoy media getting us confused with Rugby as we clearly saw in the 3 articles on local Pinoy media after our win at the Cabramatta 9s i Sydney!

Hi Numero uno

You may need to back 2 NRL teams :shock:

Another Filipino-Australian Andrew Everingham, makes his NRL debut for South Sydney joining Kevin Gordon & Matt Srama of the Gold Coast Titans:

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/ar ... d=10792986
“The Rabbitohs opened the stronger, with debutant winger Andrew Everingham enjoying a dream start to his NRL career by scoring with his first touch after just 80 secondsthanks to a lovely flick pass from centre Matt King.”

1/2 a decade ago we only ONE Filipino-Australian playing in the NRL - Craig Wing in 2012 we have THREE!!!

For the local Pinoys not initiated to Rugby League the NRL or the National Rugby League is the premier Rugby League competition in Australia equivalent to the NFL for American Gridiron!

To prove that his debut performance last week was no fluke Andrew Everingham scores the only two tries in a losing South Sydney team against Brisbane last night:

http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/leag ... 1vp9x.html
Stricken Yow Yeh's year could be over
Steve Mascord March 23, 2012 RABBITOHS 12 BRONCOS 20

“It wasn't long before Greg Inglis picked up where he had left off the previous week, confronting the defence in the north-eastern corner and allowing winger Andrew Everingham a clear passage to the try line…………
It was Inglis and Everingham again. This time the giant former Golden Boot winter stood in the tackle of three defenders, laid the ball back rugby-union style and Everingham tried to pick it up. Whether he was successful was down to interpretation. The youngster did not have control of the ball at any stage nor did he cleanly drop it, so video referee Clark awarded Souths a ''benefit of the doubt'' try”

Here is a press release on Matt Srama another Filipino-Australian playing top level Rugby League in the NRL with the Gold Coast Titans:
