Philippine Volcanoes

Featured Pinoy boys: Philippine Rugby Football Union (PRFU)

The PRFU, or more commonly known as the Philippine Volcanoes, are in the news again.

Having bested Thailand and Singapore in their bracket in SEA Games 2015, they're now moving to the finals against Malaysia.

The featured photos are from their shoot for Bench a couple of years back. I hope they do more of these in the coming months. *.* They're all erupting with sex appeal.
Anyway, you can read the full article from Rappler below.
