RACHEL Daquis is pleased to see action in another international tournament and happy for other Filipinas to get a chance to play world class players for the first time as the Philippine Super Liga selection sees action in the Thai-Denmark Super League starting on Wednesday in Bangkok.

"Magandang experience na rin sa amin ito, lalo na dun sa mga first time sa international tournament kasi yung makakalaban namin dito, magagaling. So makaka-adapt kami ng mga bagong techniques at saka lalo kaming mai-inspire na maging katulad nila."

Daquis, who plays for Army in the PSL, leads the Petron PSL All Stars against AVC Asian Women’s Club Champion Bangkok Glass in their opening match on Wednesday.

“Alam naman namin na malalakas ang mga teams dito, pero ibibigay pa din namin ang makakaya namin," said Daquisof RC Cola-Army.

“Kumbaga, every game wala dapat regrets, walang restrictions. All-out talaga. Puso ang magdadala sa amin sa labang ito."

Cha Cruz of F2 is also glad to have a chance to play alongside other PSL players against some of the best in the continent.

"Iba yung standard ng volleyball dito, so thankful kami na mabigyan ng break to play against them. Pero we’ll still give our best." said Cruz.

After facing Bangkok Glass, the Filipinas take on Idea Khonkaen on Maundy Thursday, take a break on Good Friday before facing off with 3BB Nakhonnont on Black Saturday.
