The Philippine national men’s rugby union team or the Volcanoes continued its winning run in the Asian Five Nations Division I tournament, defeating Chinese Taipei, 34-12, Wednesday night at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.
The Volcanoes set up a title showdown with Sri Lanka, which also remained undefeated in the competition after beating Singapore, 35-10, in the earlier match.
Saturday’s match between the Philippines and Sri Lanka serves as the title match, with the winner earning a promotion to the Top 5 division.
Division I is the second tier of competition in Asian Five Nations rugby, next only to the Top 5. Last year, the Philippines lost in the semifinals to South Korea, which was promoted to the Top 5.
