VIDEO - Wheelchair rugby a hit for youngsters

24 August 2012

  • Youngsters given wheelchair rugby chance
  • Supported by RFU Injured Players Foundation

The RFU Injured Players Foundation gave youngsters the chance to try wheelchair rugby at Twickenham Stadium, with former Team GB Paralympian Justin Frishberg leading the way.

Justin was injured playing rugby 20 years ago, but has enjoyed the support of the IPF and explained the benefit of spreading wheelchair rugby word: "Coming to Twickenham to show these kids what fun wheelchair rugby is has been a great experience and thanks go to the IPF for making it all happen," he said.

"We even had some of the England Under 18 squad down before they went on their summer tour to South Africa which was great, as well as members of the Challenger programme and some RFU staff, so it's been great and the message has been very positive."
