The Volcanoes targets both China and Malaysia as potential opportunities to progress to the final rounds
“China and Malaysia have shown both their team’s strengths and weaknesses, we aim to target those weaknesses to exploit potential opportunities for our team to get ahead. Sevens rugby is very unpredictable, so we have to be sure to control the game where we can and maximize our opportunities,” shared the Team Captain.
The Asia Sevens Series is the premier Sevens competition in Asia, focusing only on the Top 8 teams across the region. Only the Philippines and Malaysia from Southeast Asia qualified for 2018. Thailand and Singapore have unfortunately been ranked outside the Top 8 nations since 2017. The United Arab Emirates booked their spot in next year’s Top 8 after defeating both Thailand and Singapore this year in the Asia Trophy Series.
The Volcanoes have two legs remaining, after Korea the team travels to Sri Lanka for the third and final leg on October 12 to decide the final rankings for 2018.
