The Rugby League World Cup will be hosted this year by England and Wales. Alongside the running game there is a festival of World Cups, with Wheelchair Rugby League having it’s own international competition in Gillingham, Kent, from July 2-13th.
Scotland had their squad selection day on Saturday 23rd February. Two Dragons were in attendance and both were selected for the national squad. This is a fantastic achievement and we wish them well in training for such a huge event!

As WRL is an amateur sport the players must each raise £600 in registration fees in order to compete. Both players are also keen to fund their own specialist wheelchairs which will cost in the region of £1200. We welcome offers of sponsorship from the community to help get these players to the World Cup, if you have any fundraising ideas, get in touch!
