Thanks to Mike Policarpio and the Business Mirror Health & Fitness team and EJ Francisco of Globe Telecom for making this happen :-)
We've been asked what we do between matches at tournaments. Here are some of our pics from off the field taken at last month's Borneo 7s.
Matty's neck was hurting, so he iced it every chance he got.
We sit in the stands and watch the other matches. That's Rico on the lower left of the pic. He's our physiotherapist -- a very important part of the team!
This is Justin & Harry's attempt at a "candid" shot. Meanwhile, check out the gash on Mark's knee -- #ouch!
We talk about our next match. Those are Noel's (Team Manager) notes about the next team we're going to face and the tournament draw sheet.
We don't have to tell you that Rugby is tiring!!! So of course, we try to re-charge our batteries when we can. It would be nice to say we have a special area in the stadium where we can nap, but no, we just sleep in the stands. Haha!
Sometimes we have to do interviews. As Team Captain, Jake is usually the go-to guy for that. It's nice when kids come up to chat with us. Some even asked us to sign their shirts!
Most of all we think about why we do this and who we're doing it for. Those are Joe's hands, he wrote the team's motto - Respect, Discipline, Proudly Pinoy on his bandages.
