WARRINGTON Wolves’ disability rugby league team will compete in the World Club Challenge when they travel to Australia, playing in a curtain raiser for an NRL game.

The inaugural disability World Club Challenge will be played between the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation’s team and their South Sydney Rabbitohs counterparts at the 83,000-capacity ANZ Stadium in August.

And the game down under will be played as a curtain raiser to Souths’ NRL clash with Wests Tigers.

It comes after the foundation’s physical disability rugby league team secured their first victory, beating Wakefield Trinity 26-14 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium before the Wire’s Challenge Cup clash with Toronto Wolfpack.

Warrington Wolves legend Lee Briers pulled on the primrose and blue jersey once more to star in the game alongside former prop Jerome Guisset.

Meanwhile, the world’s first learning disability rugby league game was played at half time of the Toronto game – with the foundation’s team beating Wakefield 8-4.

Now, the team need to raise £50,000 in order to get them over to Australia.

Comedian Adam Hills, host of Channel 4’s the Last Leg, travels to Warrington from London every week to train with the PDRL team and will be facing his boyhood club when the Wire take on Souths.

And he has been attempting to rope Rabbitohs owner and Hollywood A-lister Russell Crowe into pulling on the green and red jersey.

Hills said: “I can’t believe this is happening and I am still torn who I will play for.

“I have even spoken to Russell Crowe about playing, but he’s playing on an old Gladiator injury.”
