Wheelchair World Cup squads announced

4 posts in this topic

All six nations competing in the 2013 Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup have named their squads ahead of the tournament which kicks-off at Medway, Kent, on Wednesday July 3.

The competition features Australia, England, France, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and will be held exclusively at Medway Park, Kent, with the Wheelchair World Cup final played on Saturday July 13.

Each nation will play three fixtures during the group stages, one match against each of the two nations in their group with one cross-group game; the top-placed team in each group will progress to the final when hosts England will be hoping to retain the trophy they won during the inaugural Wheelchair World Cup in 2008.

I watched Blue Peter for the first time in many a year last night after seeing @BuryJigsawWRL tweet that they were going to be featured on the show.

 

It was great coverage for the sport, with presenter Helen Skelton training and taking part in a match and also dragging her other 'alf Richie Myler along to watch from the sidelines.

 

It'll probably be up on BBC iPlayer by now if anyone wants to see it. Thursday 20th June episode on CBBC.

I didn't find out about that until after it had aired. Will have to check it out on the iPlayer
