2014 Push and Power Wheelchair Rugby League Grand Final
It's Grand Final time! At noon this Saturday it is the 2014 Push & Power Wheelchair Rugby League Grand Final and it will see minor Premiers Wests Tigers take on a hard charging St Marys Saints outfit.
The Tigers have been strong all season, wrapping up the minor premiership in convincing style. However the Saints have been building their form over the past few weeks, peaking at the right time and will no doubt take the fight right up to the Tigers.
There will also be an earlier game at 10:30am, a play-off between the Mounties and South Sydney for third position in this year's premiership. Both teams will be eager to impress and avoid winning the dreaded wooden-spoon.
The origins of Push and Power Wheelchair Rugby League date back to the early 1980's and there has been a Rugby League competition for people with disabilities each year since then. Ours is a very unique version of Wheelchair Rugby League in that it allows both 'push' and 'power' wheelchairs to compete together, and as a result it remains one of the most popular sports for people with disabilities.
Be sure to get there to witness some truly amazing athletes as they battle it out to see who will become the 2014 Push & Power Wheelchair Rugby League Premiers.
