Before the Fords’ First Team match against Wigan Warriors last weekend at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle, Castleford Tigers Foundation invited their Learning Disability Rugby League side to play on the pitch in the build-up to kick-off!
It was a special occasion for the Tigers LDRL team as they showcased their talents in front of a big crowd at Wheldon Road as they were put through their paces during a training session and exhibition match.
Watch the video in full below!
Every try scored and tackle made was applauded loudly by the Fords faithful on the day and amongst them were First Team players Alex Sutcliffe and James Clare who watched on with great interest pitch side.
LDRL rugby was created to meet the diverse requirements of rugby league players with disabilities, ensuring that anyone has access to playing the sport they love, and the Tigers are one of the founding members of the LDRL competition.
The next opportunity to see them in action will be at the next Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League festival on Saturday the 9th of July at Magic Weekend in Newcastle.
