Who can Play

Children, women and men who never thought they could!

The rules and competition are true to the game. But have been modified to cater for those with a passion for rugby league and with a physical disability that affects their strength, speed or coordination – to safely play the game they love.

The most common disabilities of participants include conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury (ABI) and stroke but other physical disabilities qualify as well.

Eight of the 10 impairment classes in the Paralympic Movement are eligible to play in PDRLA: impaired muscle power, athetosis, impaired passive range of movement, hypertonia, limb deficiency, ataxia, leg length difference and short stature.

Note: These impairments should be directly related to the condition and not due to secondary de-conditioning due to an inactive lifestyle or usual wear and tear of ageing.
