No...frustratingly...other than using your VPN set to a UK location and then watching it on the BBC ...the VPN causes buffering plus you have to watch live early in the morning as no replays:571c66d400c8c_1(103):

There doesn't appear to be an offical broadcast partner for the Philippines from what I can find.

You could try using a VPN (like Express VPN), setting your server to somewhere in Great Britain and choosing BBC... might work.

I have had mixed results doing this with various sports at various times.

 

The local internet can be fast but the overseas connections seem to be the limiting factor.

I dont know if this will help, but I searched U tube for fun. and "rugby league world cup"  popped right up. I see Tonga vs Papua that was played yesterday.

Probably Hesgoal.com I use this to watch motoGP as Fox sports no longer available, used to be able to cast to TV but no longer. Still its enough on my tablet. No necessary to have a strong signal.

Find the applicable rugby page and off you go. There might be some buffering and several pop ups before you get to the exact match you want. I watch most of the sports im interested in rugby/cricket and football on those sites with nary a problem. I watch on my Imac as cant handle the pop ups on TV.

You could buy RugbyPass if its important to watch on TV

It's no consolation to you I know, but we can't even watch English Premier League football here despite it being arguably the most popular.  

Plenty of basketball options though.:Mad:

Cricket is very difficult as well (and that's the worlds second most popular sport after football).
