I think he likes to stay away from the attention of the media that's why he isn't getting too much hype.

Several Philippines players have signed professional contracts to play in Japan next season. For those that don't know corporations sponsor teams there and the players can earn quite a bit. 1m+ a season for the biggest names. Players with Asian passports are sought after because they allow you to field one extra foreigner (four total).

Matt and Oliver Saunders will play for NTT, Justin Coveney for Ricoh (called the Black Rams lol) and James Price for Kyuden where he joins Gareth Holgate.

excuse my tardiness, I'm not here often, well not anymore...but how serious is rugby in the Philippines? It doesn't have the grassroots depth as basketball does, nor does it have the international reputation as football does, it's stuck somewhere in the middle.

Filipinos of mixed ancestry seem to be doing well propping up the 'national squad'

PRFU offers weekly training in Ultra. It's on every Mondays and Wednesday. There are also local competitions though mostly held in Alabang, or Nomads.

Volcanoes Team Named for Rugby World Cup 7s Qualifiers.
http://www.prfu.com/1/post/2012/10/v...Sv58o.facebook

The Philippine Volcanoes Rugby team will travel to Singapore to participate in the Rugby World Cup 7s Qualifiers on Nov 2-3. The team goes into the tournament on the back of some solid performances in the lead up tournaments, most notably, a win over the highly-ranked South Korean team in their final game of the recently-concluded Mumbai Sevens. The Volcanoes are ranked 6th going into the Singapore tournament and must finish in the top 3 if they are to progress to the World Cup in Moscow in 2013.

The Volcanoes have been boosted by the return of some of their players who are currently contracted to professional teams in the Japanese Top League. Oliver and Matt Saunders, Patrice Olivier and Gaz Holgate will all be present in Singapore along with the return of Ben Saunders who has just come off contract with a professional club in Sydney.

Included in the squad are Andrew Wolff and Tim Bweheni, 2 players who play in the local Filipino league, and are being rewarded for their outstanding performances this year.

New coach Al Caravelli is confident of a top 3 finish even if the results so far this year have been a little shy of the mark. His insistence on getting the process right is starting to pay off with the team improving at each outing.

Volcanoes 7s captain Harry Morris is happy with the mixture of experience and youth in the squad saying that this team is fully capable of qualifying for the World Cup if we play to our true potential.
Philippine Volcanoes Rugby World Cup 7s Qualifiers Squad:

Tim Bweheni (Alabang Eagles, Philippines)
Ryan Clarke (Canley Vale Cub, Sydney)
Gaz Holgate (Kyuden Rugby Club, Japan)
Joe Matthews (Wests Rugby Cub, Canberra)
Luke Matthews (Wests Rugby Club, Canberra)
Harry Morris (Rosslyn Park, England)
Patrice Olivier (Yamaha Rugby Club, Japan)
Kenny Stern (Gordon Rugby Club, Sydney)
Ben Saunders (Wests Tigers, Sydney)
Matt Saunders (NTT Communications, Japan)
Oli Saunders (NTT Communications, Japan)
Andrew Wolff (Alabang Eagles, Philippines)

Al Caravelli (Coach)
Expo Mejia (Manager)
Enrico Barin (Physiotherapist)

The Bronze medals shone like gold for the Philippine Volcanoes.

The Philippine Men's National Rugby Union team have achieved yet another breakthrough after defeating Korea Republic 22-19 in the bronze medal match of the HSBC Asian Rugby Sevens Series Singapore Sevens on Saturday.

The victory at the Singapore Padang field sends the Philippines to the Rugby Sevens World Cup final stage in Russia in June of next year where they will vie with 23 of the world's best Rugby Sevens teams, like Fiji, New Zealand, and defending champs Wales.
