Former Warrington Wolves centre Matt King will once again wear the primrose and blue after announcing he will play for the club’s Physical Disability Rugby League team in the inaugural World Club Challenge later this month.
The club’s PDRL side travel down under to face South Sydney Rabbitohs on Thursday 30 August at ANZ Stadium, Sydney ahead of the NRL fixture between South Sydney Rabbitohs and Wests Tigers.
King, who scored 66 tries in his 106 appearances for the Wire between 2008-11, will be one of the side’s able bodied players for the fixture.
Warrington have been at the forefront of the game’s development and played the first PDRL game against Leeds Rhinos on Sunday, 4 February. Since then the game has grown massively opening up opportunities for people with both physical and learning disabilities to play Rugby League.
Despite losing their opening fixture to Leeds, Warrington are now unbeaten in their last four games.
Australian comedian and host of The Last Leg Adam Hills has been a key member of the club’s PDRL side and will also play for the Wolves against his boyhood club.
King will be sponsored by Bentley’s Motor Group for the trip.
Our PDRL side are still fundraising for the trip down under and are just short of their £50,000 target.
