Wheelchair Rugby League announces Australian Test Squad & Coaching Staff
Wheelchair Rugby League Australia has announced a 16-man train-on squad for the upcoming two-match Test Series against England in October.
Majority of the squad has been selected after strong performances in the Wheelchair State of Origin held back in July, with 11 of the 16-man squad chosen from the victorious New South Wales side.
The squad will go into camp September 21-22 at the Hawkesbury Indoor Stadium for training before a final squad of ten is chosen for the fixtures on October 21st (Sydney) and 23rd (Wollongong).
“We’re delighted with the squad that Brett Clark has chosen and are looking forward to hosting the 2019 Test Series against our old rivals England,” Wheelchair Australia Rugby League Chairman, Martin Meredith said.
