MANILA -- Athlete-host Eric Tai, one of the regulars of the noontime show "It's Showtime," announced on Thursday that he is set to re-join the Philippine rugby team Volcanoes.

Appearing on "It's Showtime" with some of members of the rugby team, Tai said he will be leaving the country on Friday for a tournament in Malaysia, where the Volcanoes will compete with teams from Japan, Hong Kong and others.

"Actually it's been two years na nawala ako sa Volcanoes so nakapag-practice ako with them. Medyo mataaas talaga ang interest sa rugby sa Pilipinas ngayon dahil sa mga coaches at managers at pasok na ako sa team Volcanoes this year," Tai said.

During their appearance on "It's Showtime," Tai also gamely performed a song number with his Volcano teammates.
