Team Bio

The England wheelchair team had a hectic 2019 with a two-match Test series in France, which ended 1-1 against the world's top-ranked side, and a tour down under in Australia which saw them play five matches. England are a very close second in the World Rankings after a very strong showing in 2019 in the above tours, as well as falling agonisingly short of winning the last Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup in 2017, after a 38-34 defeat to France in the final.

This will be the second time England are hosts of the Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup, after the 2013 World Cup was held in Gillingham. Although, like the Men and Women, the England Wheelchair team failed to win the tournament the last time the World Cup was on home soil (losing narrowly in the final to France 44-40 in 2013), meaning that the England men’s, women’s and wheelchair sides are all aiming for glory and there is a collective desire from all three teams under the England banner to win their respective World Cups on home soil. 

Hosts England are in Group A with old rivals Australia and two of the sport's newest nations in Spain and Norway. All of England’s groups matches will take place at the Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park, London.
