A Tough Game: Philippine Volcanoes vs. Japan Rugby Team

The game between Philippine Volcanoes and Japan Rugby Team is intense and more hotter that the afternoon; happen last Saturday, May 3 at “The Balcony”, Southern Plains Football area of Southern Plains, Silangan Exit of SLEX. This game is part of the Asian 5 Nations Tournament with the Asian Rugby Football Union (ARFU).

In the first part of the game, Philippine Volcanoes score enough to bit the Japan Rugby Team but sudden change happen in a few minutes in the first half. I know the Philippine Rugby fought with all their strength but the Japanese team is tough enough to dominate the game.

When the second half begin, Japanese team score continuously and end the game with 10 points for the Philippine Rugby vs. 99 points in favor of the Japan Rugby Team.

Had the opportunity to interviewed Matt Saunders about the game and their upcoming events and opponents.

    • Thank you for that wonderful message! I’m a sports enthusiast who loves running, watching football, baskeball and swimming.

  1. Rugby is one sport Pinoy can excel. Height is a minor factor basta, mautak lang at magaling mambarog.

  2. In all fairness to the Philippine Volcanoes, I think they are doing such a bang-up job and they can really go far if they want to. Also, I love how you wrote this post! Very articulate ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Thank you Jason for the comment! Sports blogging is my forte before, will go back on it now ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I don’t follow rugby but I hope the Philippine team manages to win.

  4. It is one of my dream to see this big men up close and personal and of course watch them play. Lucky you to witness this match.

  5. I’m so not familiar with the rugby games. How different is this from the Askals?

  6. Tambak! Urgh!
    I commend the effort though, especially that this government doesnt prioritize sports. I think the Philippine Volcanoes has a lot of untapped potential, but needed support much more support where it lacks.

    • Hi Karen,
      Rugby is nit so popular in the country unlike soccer but now it is known because of the players the have. Some are models, endorsers too!
