Wales played their first ever games in Wheelchair Rugby League in July 2012, coming second to England in a Four Nations tournament.
Wheelchair Rugby League is fairly unique in that it offers both disabled and non-disabled players of both sexes the opportunity to compete both with and against each other on a level playing field.
This is created by the use of wheelchairs and some slight adaptations to the rules of 13-a-side Rugby League.
- There are five players on each side
- The object of the game is to score tries
- Conversions are scored by punching the ball over the mini-posts from a tee
- Tackles are made in the same way as Tag Rugby by pulling off the attached tag
- Five tackles are followed by the handing over of possession
- Offside, knock-on and in-touch apply just like in the full version of the game
