Gallery: Philippine Volcanoes rugby team vs Japan

The Philippines might have gone down 99-10 against the Brave Blossoms on May 3 in the Asian 5 Nations, but they sure gave it all they had.

They travel to Sri Lanka on May 17 and then host South Korea in Eagle’s Nest in Southern Plains, Calamba Laguna on May 24.

The team will be beefed up with the return of Michael Letts, Chris Hitch (for the Sri Lanka match), Michael Duhig, Ronald Fong, Rafael Zappia, and Phil Abraham.

At any rate, the PRFU is prioritizing Sevens instead of the Fifteens that is played in the A5N. The Volcanoes will play in the Asian Games in Korea in September. If they finish well in that tournament they could qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, where Sevens rugby will be played.

The team will also compete in the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore where Matt Cullen of PRFU says “we will bring you a gold medal then.”
