By Thailand Stars RL
We are pleased to announce the following players will be representing Thailand in the second Asia Cup tournament.
We have 12 players making their debut for the Stars in which 7 of these are Thai Nationals. We are delighted to have grown our participation rates in 12 months.
The 20 man squad has a lot more size and athleticism whilst our new players from last year will be better for the experience.
Whilst we are under no illusions on what will be an extremely difficult task against an experienced Tamaraws squad we are looking to improve significantly.
We are excited to be part of Rugby League history being the first international in the Philippines and the first Thai Rugby League touring team.
