Iran v Philippines in Manilla (Asia Nations Division 3)
The second match in this tournament sees relatively newcomers Iran up against the home side, the Philippines.
Last year Iran defeated both Uzbekistan and Krygyzstan in a regional tournament played in Beshkek. As a result Iran was invited into Division 3. The Philippines made this grade by also bein undefeated against Brunei and Guam in Guam.
The winner of this match will play the winner of the Guam-Indonesia match.
GWC Rugby Rankings: Asia Table-Iran 12th, Philippines 15th
Prediction: Home crowd will be a huge advantage but I expect the heavier Iranian team to pull through. Iran to win by 7 points.
