England PDRL side given green light for World Cup 2021

The Rugby Football League have announced plans for a first-ever England PDRL side, who will compete at the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

 

The event, which climaxes with a final held at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium, coincides with the men, women’s, and wheelchair tournament later next year.

 

The week-long event will kick off on the 1st November and will end during France and Samoa’s group A game a week later.

 

England PDRL will be joined by New Zealand, Australia, Scotland and Wales when the teams’ faceoff during the mini-format and showcase the sport in yet a more positive light here in the UK.

 

Over the past couple of years, physical disability Rugby League has gone from strength-to-strength, with over six Super League teams boasting a PDRL side.

 

The Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation has received great plaudits over the past few years and was recognised as one of the top three foundations within Super League, on par with both Warrington and St Helens. 

 

Great initiatives have also seen the Trinity PDRL side handed a documentary, which offers great insight into the lives of three players who embarked on a trip of a lifetime to Australia and is available now on Amazon Prime.

 

Great work from all the clubs associated with this rapidly-growing sport has once again given PDRL chance to shine and is ready to take it with both hands.
