Rugby is a legit Filipino sport

The Philippines has a rich heritage that keeps us anchored to our roots. No matter how modern the times, the Filipino culture, especially classic proverbs and sayings, still resonate deeply.

Ang hindi lumingon sa pinanggalingan, ‘di makararating sa paroroonan

Directly translated, the saying means — one who does not look back at one’s past, can never move on and reach one’s destination. Although Rugby is English in origin, the sport is a perfect embodiment of this Filipino proverb. In Rugby, you can only pass the ball backward or lateral, while you move forward and attempt to score a “try”.
