Philippine Volcanoes Rugby Team in Shanghai Sevens tournament



Rugby Union is the new sport to the Philippines. Most Filipinos are familiar with rugby but our country is represented by a strong national team, the Philippine Volcanoes.

Unknown to many, the national rugby team, PHL Volcanoes  won the gold medal in the Southeast Asian Games in 2005. They also won a silver medal in the same competition in 2007. In the last five years, the team was able to compete in different Asian tournaments and climbed from Division 4 to Division 1.

In 2008, 2009, and 2010, the team beat India, China, Thailand, Guam, Iran, and Pakistan. They won all these games and no one knew.

On August 27 and 28, the national rugby team will compete against UAE and Korea in Shanghai Sevens Rugby Tournament.

Let’s cheer and give suport to the PHL Volcanoes just as we gave support to the The Philippine national football team, The Azkals.
