What a weekend of Wheelchair Rugby it was, down in Caroline Springs, Victoria!

Over 3 days, our state teams played head to head against each other, and the visiting Wheelchair Rugby Canad team, who were in town to compete against the Steelers this week.

The Canadians must have felt right at home in the cold, as they took out the trophy after a fantastic match against the GIO NSW Gladiator 62-59. It was point-for-point, nail-biter of a match until the last 3 minutes, when the Canadians snuck ahead and won by just 3 points.

Despite the cold, and a couple of injuries, we all had a cracking weekend at the Caroline Springs Leisure Centre.

A big thank you to  Disability Sport and Recreation , Protect Victoria and everyone who came along to support our teams! 

We look forward to seeing you again in Sydney, August 19-21st for the Nationals.
