Tonight, we celebrated the outstanding achievements of every single player involved in our disability set-up here at Wakefield Trinity.
After 2020 was struck down by Covid-19, Disability Rugby League was re-born in 2021, with both our PDRL and LDSL returning earlier this year.
After an outstanding year in 2019 – which saw Lee Whiteley’s side reach their first-ever Grand Final – there was an abundance of optimism buzzing around our Physical Disability side.
After a couple of draws to start the campaign, Trinity soon got going, defeating arch-rivals Leeds Rhinos in round three with a stunning 16-6 victory.
With their tails up and their sights firmly set on 2021’s showcase event, Wakefield finished second in the table, reaching their second Grand Final in so many years.
Las, it wasn’t meant to be, however, they can certainly hold their heads high after another superb campaign.
LDSL, on the other hand, have also had another great 2021, competing in four festivals situated across Yorkshire, including a record-breaking event in York.
As such an integral part of our Foundation, Learning Disability Rugby League has gone from strength to strength in recent years, with the sport being played on the main stage.
2021 brought about a difference to proceedings, but to have 17 players, all playing the sport they love is an outstanding feat.
