Rugby league is a sport for everyone and one of the modified games that has developed to help provide a more inclusive environment for more people is Wheelchair Rugby League.
The Australian Wheelchair Rugby League will hold a Public Meeting on January 15, 2016 on the Sunshine Coast to seek interest in establishing a Steering Committee for a possible Queensland Branch of the WRLA.
*Please note - meeting time has been updated to 6pm*
The WRLA is aiming to correctly formulise a body in Queensland which will hopefully provide opportunity for wheelchair-bound individuals to participate in rugby league.
The ARLC/NRL are hosting the Rugby League World Cup in 2017 and one of the disciplines of the Festival of Rugby League is the 2017 Rugby League Wheelchair World Cup.
The WRLA would like to create a pathway for Queensland wheelchair athletes to be eligible for selection for this event.
The Public Meeting details are as follows:
Date: January 15, 2016
Time: 6pm* (updated time)
Venue: Caloundra Sharks RLFC, Caloundra
