12:00, 08 Apr 2023

The Sportsman is delighted to announce that we will be continuing our live and free coverage of rugby league, as we host a triple-header from the Betfred Wheelchair Super League on Saturday 15th April.

Starting at 12pm, we'll be showing London Roosters vs Leeds Rhinos, as England captain Tom Halliwell is set to face off against his World Cup coach Tom Coyd. The 2pm game sees Warrington Wolves take on Hull FC while the final game of the day, at 4pm, is the defending champions Halifax Panthers vs Wigan Warriors, who already met in round one when Wigan managed a tremendous 59-45 victory. 

It will be a historic weekend of action, as the Betfred Wheelchair Super League makes history by hosting its first Central Inclusion round in the UK's second city, Birmingham.

Central Inclusion rounds were introduced as part of the plan to build on the impact of the Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup last autumn, and will expand later this year to include the Physical Disability and Learning Disability Super Leagues. But for the first round, at the University of Birmingham in Edgbaston, it’s the amazing athletes and teams of the Betfred Wheelchair Super League who take centre stage, including almost all of England’s World Cup winners.

Martin Coyd OBE, the General Manager of England Wheelchair Rugby League, says:

“We are really looking forward to the first Central Inclusion round in Birmingham. We believe it is a city where Wheelchair Rugby League has great potential, so it is the perfect venue for our inaugural event.

“These weekends will give fans the chance to see our best players on one pitch in a single afternoon - it is an incredibly exciting concept. The events also give us the chance to take Wheelchair Rugby League ‘on the road’ and help fulfil the massive demand there has been since England’s World Cup win last Autumn. 

“We really hope that by experiencing the excitement of Wheelchair Rugby League in person, this will encourage more people to give to a go and play.”

The three games will be shown live and free on The Sportsman Rugby League YouTube channel, as well as on our website, with coverage set to get underway at 11:45pm.
