Pakistan suffered a heavy defeat in the first international rugby test ever held in the country, losing 44-0 to Thailand.  Although Thailand was outweighed by at least 100 kilos on the front row, the team managed to thump Pakistan by focusing on their superior speed. “Our coach went to New Zealand and learnt new techniques there," said Thailand captain Pathomrat Sirisab.  "We had not tried these techniques in a match situation before. Pakistan players are very big, but they were not quick enough. We were aware they are much heavier, so we used our backline. We spread it to the wings.”
