Wales PDRL to play two matches in June

The Wales Physical Disability team are to play two matches in South Wales in June.

Their first match is a friendly against Team Colostomy UK at Sardis Road in Pontypridd in a month’s time on Sunday 9 June (kick-off 2.30pm).

The second is a full international on Friday 21 June at Swansea RFC against a “PDRL World All Stars” side as the opening encounter of the Swansea Para Sport Festival (kick-off 7.30pm).

Outside of traditional mega-events, like the Paralympics, Deaflympics, Virtus Global Games or Special Olympic Games, the Swansea Para Sport Festival is the first event of its kind. The event contains a number of sports and is headlined by the 2024 World Triathlon Para Series Swansea.

Wales PDRL head coach Rob Davies said: “We’re delighted to be playing two matches in June that will showcase Physical Disability Rugby League in Wales.

“Team Colostomy UK made their PDRL debut in Wales last year when they played against Aberavon Fighting Irish. We’re pleased they’re coming back to Wales again.

“That match will be a good warm up for us against the All Stars side in the 2024 Swansea Para Sport Festival that may include players we faced in the last World Cup.

“Admission to both games are free and we look forward to seeing a big crowd at each to cheer us on.”

Wales debuted in the 2022 PDRL Rugby League World Cup, finishing third and have since played international matches against England.

Physical Disability Rugby League (PDRL) is a running, mixed contact adaption of Rugby League played by players with a range of impairments that limit their mobility or co-ordination.
