KUALA LUMPUR — As expected the Philippine men’s rugby 7s team opened up with an explosive start after scoring two easy wins in the Southeast Asian Games Saturday at Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya Stadium, Kelana Jaya here.

Champions in the sport’s maiden staging in 2015 Singapore edition, the Volcanoes drubbed Indonesia, 47-5, before demolishing Cambodia, 47-7.

They are to face Malaysia late Saturday before taking on Singapore and Thailand on Sunday in a bid to once again sweep the competition all the way to the gold medal.

Last year’s bronze medalist Lady Volcanoes weren’t as lucky as they bowed to Thailand, 32-0, in the opening match of the women’s division.
