Seven players from the national development team have been elevated to the Philippine U19 Junior Volcanoes that will see action in the Division 1 Asia Rugby Championships here this December.
The promotion of the seven was based on their performance in a two-match international rugby series against Hong Kong’s U19 Chinese development team recently.
The U19 Volcanoes will play teams from Korea, Singapore, and United Arab Emirates from Dec. 13-17, with the winner being promoted to the Asian U19’s Premier Division.
Coach Carlito Abono would rather not delve on the result of the two exhibition matches the team played against Hong Kong.
“Hindi na namin tinitingnan kung sino ang nanalo, kundi yung development mismo ng players at team,” said Abono in the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum Tuesday at Shakey’s Malate.
