2019 SEA Games

Philippine Volcanoes take SEAG rugby gold


CLARK — As expected, the Philippine Volcanoes dominated the men’s division, while the Lady Volcanoes settled for second in the women’s class in the rugby 7s competition of the 30th Southeast Asian Games Sunday at the Parade Grounds.

The Volcanoes blasted defending champion Malaysia, 19-0, to capture the gold medal in the men’s category.

This is the second time that the Volcanoes defeated the Malaysians in the finals. They previously scored a 24-7 triumph in the 2015 Singapore SEA Games, before finishing fourth in the 2017 edition held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Meanwhile, the Lady Volcanoes lost to Thailand, 7-17, in the women’s gold medal round.

The Lady Volcanoes — who saw action in two tournaments in China this year where it faced the top eight teams in Asia — earlier suffered a 7-38 setback against the Thais in the preliminaries.
