Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is proud to have three PDRL players representing the club at the international level.
Trinity’s Adam Fleming, Ben Nicholson and Callum Parkinson attended the first-ever England Community Lions PDRL training camp, as the side geared up for the 2022 Rugby League World Cup.
Disability Rugby League has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years, with the sport linking up with clubs up and down the country to offer everyone the opportunity to play the sport they love.
With a historic World Cup coming up at the end of the year, the players are putting in the hard yards to hope to compete in the world-renowned tournament in October.
Speaking with Trinity and England’s Adam Fleming, he said, “[We learnt about] everything, really. Some new skills with the ball and some new activities on the pitch. Also, we got to grips with some new fitness drills. Quite a bit more in that.”
While, Callum Parkinson, followed, “It was great to join England, meet all the players, it was good to meet the whole team.
“Us at Wakefield obviously get on really well and it is great to link up with the other teams and see what they’re up to.”
PDRL and Disability Rugby League has taken huge steps over the last few years, with plans to grow the game even further over the next couple of years.
