Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation

Trinity support inclusion in Rugby League

Over the past weekend, Wakefield Trinity came together to showcase all that is good about Rugby League, bringing together all our teams on the same stage.

Starting with the RFL and their signing of the Muslim Athlete Charter at the stadium, becoming the first governing body to do so. This follows on from Trinity becoming the first Super League side to invite diversity and the needs of Muslim Athletes back in November.

Following a successful Friday, we then hosted the first Physical Disability Rugby League festival of the year at Eastmoor Dragons, bringing together six clubs from across the Super League and Championship, showing all that is great about the sport.

In their new kit, funded by our sponsors, Trinity managed to pick up two wins over Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers, respectively, cementing their charge for another Grand Final appearance in August.

Moving onto Sunday, we brought a double-header to the Be Well Support Stadium, with the first team celebrating a fantastic victory over Salford Red Devils before our Ladies’ side hosted Oulton in their final game of the Challenge Cup group stages.

Half-time marked the return of Learning Disability Rugby League as our side headed onto the pitch for the first time in 2022 to play Salford, setting them up perfectly for their first festival of the year next Sunday.

The day was rounded off with a visit from the Rugby League World Cup and its ambassadors, showing off the iconic trophies which will be listed at the end of the year.

Speaking on the day as a whole, the head of Foundation, Mark Brennan, said, “It was a fantastic spectacle, celebrating all that is good about the sport.

“Wakefield Trinity is an inclusive club, and we pride ourselves on that mantra. To bring all the different variations of the sport into one setting was a unique, but an incredible thing.”
