MANILA, Philippines --- Jayson Castro is the latest to apologize on the part of Gilas Pilipinas for the unfortunate brawl Monday against Australia.

In an uncharacteristic move, the normally-calm Castro was one of the first to charge at Australia's Daniel Kickert after the Boomer knocked down RR Pogoy with an elbow to the face.

Castro, one of the leaders of the national team, was one of nine players ejected.

"Hindi namin ginusto ang nangyari. Hindi kami pumunta sa laro para maghanap ng away," Castro said.

"Sa kagustuhan naming ipagtanggol yung kakampi namin, lalong lumaki yung gulo," he added.

Many were surprised at Castro charging at an Australian almost double his size.

The Blur has addressed his sudden fit of anger as well, saying he's not the kind of person to actively seek fights.

"Hindi ako ganung klaseng tao," Castro said.

"Hindi tayo ganun bilang Pilipino. Dapat mas na-control ko yung emotions ko dahil buong bansa yung sala namin pag naglalaro kami para sa Gilas," he added.

Here's Castro's full post.
