RUGBY 101 | PH vs UAE

All along I thought that the game of Rugby was like American Football minus the protective gears. But when I watched the game of the Philippine National Rugby Team aka the Philippine Volcanoes vs UAE last May 18, 2013 at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila, I was introduced to Rugby 101.


Before the game started

It was fun to experience and watch our Philippine National Rugby Team battle it out with the team from UAE. As I watch the game, I realized that even though rugby is a very physical sport, it’s also a gentleman’s game. The man with the ball is always the target and get’s the beating. But I never saw anyone threw a punch or took a cheap-shot against the opposing player.

The Volcanoes scored a big 24-8 win in front of the hometown crowd and gave them the Top 5 division of the tournament. It was a good win for the Volcanoes coming from defeats  against Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea.
