History was made on Sunday as the UK's first-ever Physical Disability Rugby League match took place.
Leeds Rhinos took on Warrington Wolves and it was the Rhinos who took the spoils, winning 22-10 at Victoria Park in Warrington.
An estimated crowd of over 1,500 turned out for the match, which saw The Last Leg hosts Adam Hills and Alex Brooker go head-to-head.
