He had been bullied about his disability and wanted to give up.

But he was encouraged to keep going and scored 11 tries at a rugby union festival in Cardiff.

Ex-Wales and British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton tweeted: “Inspirational.”


Mum Donna, said: “It is great because it gives him so much more confidence, especially as he was bullied in the past.”

A spokesman for Trefil under-10s in South Wales said: “Shay’s been asked, ‘How can you play rugby with one arm?’

“We reply, ‘Because he’s talented’.”
