Premiership Glory Awaits NSW Wheelchair Teams
NSW Wheelchair Rugby League (NSWWRL) premiers St George Dragons will be out to clinch consecutive titles for the second time at the competition’s finals series this Sunday 18 December at Menai Indoor Sports Centre.
Rivals Penrith Panthers, who claimed the minor premiership, will head into Sunday’s finals series as favourites after finishing the regular season six points clear at the top of the table.
Players will also be out to impress in a bid to earn selection into the Australian side, with next year’s World Cup to be held in France in July.
“The standard of the competition has certainly lifted. It’s a milestone for NSWWRL as this is the sixth grand final we’ve conducted,” said Joseph Chidiac, Director of the Wheelchair Rugby League Australia Incorporated.
“It’s exciting to see so many players vying for positions in representative sides next year."
Penrith will kick-off the day at 11:30am against Canterbury in the first of two knock-out finals, before Cronulla and St George face off for the second spot in the grand final.
