A little grit and a lot of determination helped the Philippines, an unseeded team, beat India 34-12 in the final of the HSBC Asian Five Nations Rugby Tournament here.

A place in the 2011 Rugby World Cup was at stake as the teams faced each other on a pleasant evening. The Philippines showed aggressive intent from the word go. The hosts were reeling 7-22 at the halfway mark.
