The 2017 Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup was the third in the history of the sport and was retained by France, who beat England in the Final. Held between Thursday July 20 to Friday July 28, it was held in France after the tournament didn’t become affordable to be staged in Australia.
Seven teams took part in the tournament with one “Super Group” where the top two sides qualified for the semi-finals and the remaining two faced the top two from the three team group in semi-final qualifiers. Wales finished fifth in the tournament after beating Spain in their final play-off.
