In the last week of June, New South Wales Wheelchair Rugby League head coach Brett Clark travelled to Darwin to be part of the activities leading up to the NRL round that saw the Parramatta Eels take on the Canberra Raiders.
The turn out of this event was great, with a number of locals keen to play the sport and meet Parramatta players Michael Jennings and Daniel Alavro.
Lunch time Thursday 27th June gave NSWWRL head coach Brett Clark another opportunity to showcase the game with the U/15 Mens Northern Territory Titans.
This was a fun session and another great way to get the message out about wheelchair rugby league in Darwin.
This also gave the young men and coaching staff the chance to have a little fun trying another form of the game that they loved.
Parramatta Eels v Canberra Raiders Game
Saturday afternoon saw the NRL come to Darwin, and as part of the pre-game activities gave another great opportunity for Wheelchair Rugby League, young Weston was given the honor of meeting both team captains and do the coin toss.
Weston's family and friends have been involved in a number of the Darwin Wheelchair Rugby League skills sessions.
This was a great week to promote the NRL Wheelchair to the local Darwin Community. Without the help and backing of NRL Wheelchair, NT NRL, APM, NDIS, the Parramatta Eels and everyone who helped to make this a success, sports like Wheelchair Rugby League doesn't happen.
Thanks to all involved.
