Further to our article last August, Tarvin teenager, Chis Twigg, from local team, Woolston Rovers, recently achieved his dream when he made his debut for Thailand Rugby Team against El Salvador in their debut international.

The 18-year-old former Warrington Wolves academy player, who usually plays on the wing for Woolston Rovers, featured at stand off and had a good game, landing two conversions in his side's 32-12 win. Head coach Brian Smith, elder brother of Wolves boss Tony Smith, had some words of praise for him after the game.

In the next game Thailand face Hungary and Chris will be hoping that his display against El Salvador will be enough to keep him in the side.
