England win the Wheelchair Rugby League European Championship


England claim victory and win the Wheelchair Rugby League European Championship beating the former world champions France 28-24.
England team Captain Jack Brown scored the needed points with a hat-trick try after Joe Coyd’s try took the game into extra time.

The chairman of Wheelchair RL, Martin Coyd, said: “England and France are the best two teams in the world.

“We haven’t been near them since 2011. The calmness of the players was fantastic.”

The European cup was held at Medway Park in Kent, and a five team tournament with Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and England competing.

Had you previously heard that the England wheelchair rugby team had been in and won the European Cup?, do you think it needs more exposure in the media?.
