It is one of the two major codes of rugby football, the other being rugby union.
Rugby league is played in more than 30 countries, though it is most commonly played in the United Kingdom (predominantly northern England) Australia and New Zealand.
Rugby league is great if you want to work out outside, and don’t mind getting a mid muddy! It’s a cardiovascular workout that can help to improve your speed, agility and strength.
Cost vary between clubs.
For beginners, comfy clothes and trainers that you don’t mind getting muddy is all you need to give rugby league a go.
If you’d like to play more regularly, talk to your club or coach about the kind of kit you might need.
Introductory ways to play include 'touch' and 'tag'. Some local clubs may offer these type of sessions. Please get in touch with the contacts on the right of this page to find out where and when.
Are you up for a challenge? Fancy a nail-biting, seat-gripping, full contact wheelchair sport? Well...you've come to the right place. Wheelchair rugby's not nicknamed 'murderball' for nothing you know!
It's open to men and women - whatever your age. If you have upper and lower limb disabilities and a thirst for action, then maybe it's about time you gave wheelchair rugby a shot.
