In 2018 Josh Twine joined a new Mixed Ability rugby team set up by Bath Rugby Foundation for young people with special needs.

He quickly became a popular member of the team and was named Clubman of the Year at the team's end of season awards.

The team, Walcot Warriors,was created through the Project Rugby programme, which aims to introduce new players to the sport, focusing on those groups who are unsually underrepresented in rugby clubs.

Josh has also been an attendee of Bath Rugby Foundation's Hi5! Club, the only multi-sport club in Bath and North East Somerset for young people living with disabilities.
