NSW Wheelchair Rugby League Heads to Tamworth

NSW Wheelchair Rugby League Heads to Tamworth

NSW Wheelchair Rugby League (NSWWRL) would like to invite members of the New England and Tamworth community, and all supporters, to attend the 2018 City-Country Wheelchair Rugby League Festival.

City versus Country has long played a part in New South Wales Rugby League sporting history, and this tradition has now moved to the NSWWRL. The festival is held annually between the two sides in regional NSW to showcase Wheelchair Rugby League to rural communities. 

After successful events in both 2016 and 2017, this year's 2018 City Country Wheelchair Rugby League Festival will return to Tamworth from 18-20 May.

The weekend will include Wheelchair Rugby League Clinics and the 2018 NSWWRL City-Country Rep Game.

New England/Tamworth Wheelchair Rugby League Expressions of Interest

In addition to the 2018 City-Country Wheelchair Rugby League Festival, the NSWWRL are searching for expressions of interest from individuals and groups within the New England and Tamworth community who would like to play or help establish the sport in the region. NSWWRL would like to expand the sport throughout the state, but we need the help of players and volunteers. 

Wheelchair Rugby League is an inclusive sport that allows people with disabilities, injuries and illnesses, as well as able bodied people, to play a modified version of Rugby League at all levels. If you fit this category, or would like more information, please fill out the expression of interest form here.
