HOLLYWOOD star Russell Crowe has been praising Warrington Wolves PDRL team describing them as 'the pride of Warrington'.

The physical disability rugby league team became world champions after pulling off a superb 34-12 victory over their South Sydney Rabbitohs counterparts at Sydney’s 83,000-capacity ANZ Stadium.

They were welcomed home by fans at half time during Friday's game against Huddersfield.


The Warrington Wolves Foundation has been thanking a number of sponsors this week for helping to make the trip happen.

There's now hopes for a PDRL league forming next year.
