Philippines in the 2011 Asian Five Nations (A5N)

The Philippine national rugby union team (also known as the Philippines Volcanoes XV) is looking to extend their 6-game unbeaten streak in the Asian Five Nations (A5N) in the upcoming Asian Rugby Football Union Five Nations Division I tournament.

The Volcanoes XV started their 2011 international season in a two-game Home Test Series against Hong Kong (April 14-16) and tasted defeat  in international test match rugby for the first time since losing a friendly  international against Pakistan in 2006 (losing 3-24). The national team will face South Korea in the semi-final of the Asian Five Nations Division I tournament in June 2011 and ensure that the Philippines will remain unbeaten in the Asian Five Nations tourney [The Philippines and Japan are the only unbeaten teams remaining in the Asian Five Nations since the tourney started in 2008].

Here is the 30-man Philippine Volcanoes national squad (named last December 2010) for the Home Test Series:
