Aw. Rupert Zappia won’t be playing.
it’s sunday and in this gloomy day this is what I saw but to tell you the truth I’m not even disappointed. I’ve seen our National Team play against the strongest asian teams and they don’t give up with a fight! I’m certain with a 12-5 score that can only mean one thing a defense is strong!
then loosing to China might have been emotional and physical battle amongst our squad again with 2 tries short, I say well done. 24-10.
The fighting spirit of our team is something we should all be proud of! We’re still proud of you! #GoPhilippineVolcanoes
I agree! We’re still so very proud, gentlemen! Thank you so much for choosing to play for the Philippines.
I have been getting a few comments on twitter about joining the Philippine Volcanoes and/or rugby “bandwagon”. Calm down, girlies! Don’t get your panties up in a bunch. I am much too happy for these gentlemen to even make a snotty remark. I ain’t even mad.
On another note: Can’t wait for PHLvROK and AUSvNZ later.
funny how THERE ARE A LOT OF HATERS for Philippine Volcanoes despite their achievements! I’ve been reading all sorts of hate WTF?! from our player being expats HELLOOOO WE HAVE KIT GUERRA playing for us! and majority of our DEVELOPMENT TEAM ARE FILIPINOS *ugh* now this. goodness SMGDFH!!!
and before they start thinking this is a new sport blah-blah-blah since world war II we have a rugby team AND WE HAVE RUGBY LEAGUE PLAYERS who are part of NRL roster play for us *cough* Justin Coveney (Wests Tigers) and Joven Clark(South Sydney Rabbithos) and you know what they chose to represent our COUNTRY! and what do we do WHINE AND SAY ALL KINDS OF SHIT! it’s sad why not STFU and get your ass selected on the team, and make it 100% Pinoys then, this just disgusts me to no end. ALL YOU MOTHER FUCKERS DO IS TALK!
and let me bring this up again QUADE COOPER! you know that motherfucker? he is a new zealand born athlete but chose to play for AUSTRALIA! Manu Tuilagi is samoan but chose to represent England! stop hating you racist schmucks!
