That this House welcomes the UK’s first ever Physical Disability Rugby League match between Warrington Wolves and Leeds Rhinos, which took place at Warrington's Victoria Park Asics Stadium on 4 February 2018; congratulates all those who took part, including The Last Leg's Adam Hills and Alex Brooker who went head to head playing for Warrington and Leeds respectively; notes that after a tightly fought game, Leeds Rhinos were victorious 22-10 in front of over 1,000 spectators; further notes that Physical Disability Rugby League is a modified version of the game which involves both full contact and touch tackle options, for all players who have physical disabilities; further congratulates the Warrington Wolves Foundation, Leeds Rhinos Foundation and all involved with the development of this version of the game in the UK; and hopes that more clubs will establish Physical Disability Rugby League teams to provide further opportunities for all to take part in rugby league.
