A moment of honour for One Tribe after they were contacted by the Philippine National Rugby League (PNRL) and asked to design some tribal artwork for their playing apparel. One Tribe's design included motifs from all regions of the Philippines to symbolise the vast cultural background of the players. The front design is an insignia of the horns of the tamaraw (a native buffalo and is also the team name) and the Philippine eagle on the rear, and reptile motifs on the sleeve. All symbolising the players as "modern warriors", playing one of the toughest sports in the world! The jerseys were worn by the Philippine Tamaraws at their first international league test match against Thailand in October 2012. The Philippines side consisting of professional NRL players Kevin Gordon and Matt Srama proved too powerful defeating Thailand 86 – 0.
One Tribe's designs were also incorporated into the Tamaraws' gear for the Cabramatta League International 9's tournament held in February 2013. It was a great day out with the PNRL entering three teams and plenty of support shown by the Filipino community including members of the Philippine Consulate, sponsors and NRL player Andrew Everingham.
