Taiwan pulled off a close win against Thailand in their Asia Rugby Championship Division 2 match at the MBPJ Stadium in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Taiwan led 12-9 at halftime through tries to No. 8 Wang Yu-hsiang and inside center Chang Lun-wei.

Thailand had hooker Chawiatt Klongtrujrok yellow carded just before halftime.

Taiwan scored two tries to three in the second half, with flanker Tsai Cheng-hsuan dotting down and Wang adding his second, but Thailand leveled the scores at 24-24 through a try to center Peerapol Chukoun and a conversion to fullback Warongkorn Khamkoet shortly after Taiwan halfback Liu Yao-tang had returned from a stint in the sin-bin.

However, Kuo Wen-ching crossed in the last minute of play to seize the five-point victory.     [FULL  STORY]
