Australia's Men's Beach Volleyball team have secured another win in the Group Stage overnight.

Chris McHugh (pictured above) who was born in Pambula on the South Coast, and Paul Burnett defeated Leo Williams and Grant Goldschmidt of South Africa 2-0.

It comes after their 2-0 victory over the Maldives on Saturday in an ideal start to their Commonwealth Games campaign.

McHugh is aiming to back up his gold-medal winning efforts on the Gold Coast in 2018.

The Aussie pair face off with Rwanda tomorrow night (Wednesday August 3).
