Volcanoes dominate Doha rugby tilt

by | sports

The Philippine National Men's Rugby Sevens Team, the

Volcanoes, bested 10 other countries to win the top prize in the

recent Asian Rugby Sevens Trophy competition in Doha, Qatar.

Coming out of the first day on top of their pool with dominant

wins versus Nepal and Qatar, the Volcanoes started day two of

the competition by defeating Iran 42 to 0 in the Quarter Final to

set up a Semi-Final battle with SEA Games rivals, Singapore,

according to a dispatch from the team’s Facebook page.

A strong start had Singapore leading the match 10 – 7, but the

Volcanoes kept their composure and produced try by Vincent

Amar Young on the final play, ending the match at 12-10. The

narrow win pushed the Philippines into the Grand Final against

Thailand, which had also yet to drop a game in the competition,

the report added.

“In the Final, the Globe Ph Volcanoes wasted no time and

produced a rapid series of tries which gave them a commanding

29 points to 0 lead at halftime. Thailand attempted a comeback

in the second half, but only managed one try and conversion

before the Philippines finished them off with a final two tries

ending the match 41 – 7,” it said. 

Team Capt. Daniel Bembo Matthews was awarded Most

Valuable Player, while Timothy Bweheni was proclaimed Man of

the Match.

"It was a real team effort to win this tournament. The players put

in the hard yards and really played for each other. This win was

for all our supporters, we appreciate all the support we have

received," Matthews was quoted as saying.

With this win, the Philippines gains entry back into the Asian

Sevens Series (A7S) which is the Rugby Sevens competition

among top tier teams in Asia such as Japan, Hong Kong and

Korea. The A7S will be played  through September and October

in Hong Kong, Korea and Sri Lanka. 

The Globe Ph Volcanoes will compete next month at the

Singapore SEA 7s on April 14 and 15.
