Looks like this awesome high-flyer is willing to play for the country.

After hearing the news that Fil-foreign players Christian Standhardinger and Maverick Ahanmisi were both eligible to play for the country in the Asian games, Chris Newsome asks if he can also represent the Philippines.

However, the talented Fil-Am said that he will rest to improve his conditioning, if he’s not eligible.

But since the line-up had already been announced, maybe Newsome will have his chance next time.
