RL Together at Wakefield Trinity this Sunday

Wakefield Trinity will become the latest Betfred Super League club to host an Inclusion Fixture, when they play Warrington Wolves at the Be Well Support Stadium this Sunday.

Inclusion fixtures are an opportunity for clubs to showcase the development work they do both within their clubs and the wider community, where collectively they are strengthening foundations and making new connections with diverse groups and individuals.

Already boasting a successful disability set-up, the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation will highlight all the great work and dedication behind all of its programmes and teams.

Since its inception in 2017, Trinity’s Physical Disability and Learning Disability Rugby League offers have gone from strength to strength. Sides competing in festivals once a month across the north of England, including a showpiece event at Magic Weekend in Newcastle for Learning Disability Super League players.

The rapid rise of the physical and learning disability variations means that in excess of 35 players now wear the Wakefield Trinity badge, showing supporters and the world why Rugby League is one of the most inclusive sports out there.

Trinity will also be showcasing Women's Rugby League, shining the spotlight on the senior side as well as two up-and-coming programmes in the Girls Development Academy and the Rugbees programme, both of which started in 2023. The women’s action gets underway at 11.45am, while a pre-match festival will showcase the emergence of the Girls Development Academy prior to the Trinity versus Wolves fixture, with Rugbees taking place at half-time during that match.

And following the conclusion of the Betfred Super League Round 20 match, both of Trinity’s disability sides will take to the field as they face Warrington Wolves PDRL and a Warrington Wolves/Sheffield Eagles LDSL side at 4.45pm.

The Wheelchair and PDRL World Cup trophies will be on display in the Rollin' Shack prior to kick-off.

RFL Inclusion Lead, Ben Abberstein, adds: “Trinity rightly received plaudits for their Inclusion Round in 2022 – now here they are bigger and better than ever in 2023. It promises to be a fantastic day. The club will be stronger for it and Rugby League itself will be a stronger sport too – one that is truly representative of all its communities.”

Only single tickets can be bought for the full day. There will be no individual tickets available for each of the events taking place over the course of the afternoon. To book your spot in the stand, please click HERE.
