The SKINNY on Bangkok Tour
Organized, professional and motivated are three words that one could use to describe Manila Nomads as they arrived at the ground for the German All Stars Bangkok Tournament 2012 held last April at Thailand’s capital city.
However, if we are to be truthful – unorganized, leathered/hung-over and disinterested would probably fit the bill more appropriately.

DoJ finds 'probable cause' against 2008 Board
The twists are getting more ‘bizarre’ at every turn, the plot getting thicker like an incongruous chapter out of a weird mystery novel. Or so it would seem to most of the Club’s past and present Board of Directors, with the ‘troubles’ emanating from the collective, albeit practical, decision to buy the land on which the Nomads Sports Club stands.
After much anticipation and preparation, Nomads finally opened the gym in February.
The gym has several cardio machines ranging from treadmills, stationary bikes, free weights, a bench press and machines for a complete work out.

Manila 10s 23rd Annual International Rugby Tournament
Rugby is played on grass, not on paper!
Most reports on a tournament would detail the action chronologically, or even start with the premier division, in this case the Cup.
This report; however, is going straight to the big news.
'Watchlisted' no more
The constant threat that has been hanging like the proverbial sword of Damocles over the heads of eight Nomad Sports Club board members since August last year is finally gone, and the apparent ’injustice’ wrought by an undeserved ‘punishment’ hopefully consigned to oblivion, if not the trash bin.
