2018 Interstate Challenge



The Wheelchair Rugby League Australia Interstate Challenge is the prime Australian wheelchair rugby league event, showcasing the best playing talent currently from the New South Wales and Queensland Wheelchair Rugby League codes. Our version of the NRL's "State of Origin", players are selected to represent their state in which they played their first senior Wheelchair Rugby League game.

The series started in 2015 and has made its mark as one of the premier events. In 2018, the Interstate Challenge will make history by being held on the same day and location as an NRL "State of Origin" Game for the first time. Not only this, but the event will also be held for the first time in Sydney.

Entry is free. No Tickets required.

The Talent Showcase has been introduced as the curtain raiser for the annual Interstate Challenge. The teams are made up of developing players from within the hosting region, giving them an opportunity to play in front of a large audience.


The majority of these players come from a range of other programs we provide for juniors, veterans and women, as well as players who have been introduced to the sport after recently being injured or acquiring a disability.

This years Talent Showcase will see the Women's Wheelchair Rugby League Australia Redbacks take on the NSWWRL Bluetongues.
