The 2022 Australian Schoolboys representative has enjoyed an impressive first season with Wests Tigers after playing in the NRL Pre-season Challenge against the Warriors.

The 19-year-old played a full season in SG Ball for Wests Magpies and five games in Jersey Flegg before making his NSW Cup debut last weekend.

“It’s a great achievement for Chris and all pathways players who have gained Origin selection," said Matthew Betsey, General Manager - Women's and Pathways.

"This reflects their hard work and consistency this season.

They should all be very proud, just as we are as a club.”
