Simply awesome. And scary. No fear. Wheelchairs smashing into each other. Wheels coming off. Riders crashing to the floor and bouncing back up. My god. Football players are a bunch of woosies.
Wasn’t there a film about something similar or am I thinking Dodgeball?
There was Rollerball years ago. That was basically about killing the other players. Not dissimilar to wheelchair Rugby
did that not star James Caan?
My mate used to be the physio for England’s olympic wheelchair rugby team, got me a ticket for the 2012 warm up tournament, absolute carnage and great fun
Watched some of Eng v Aus tonight, quite decent.
But any international sport where Eng thrash the Aussies gets my serious vote
A lad from Southampton was in the Olympic team - Aaron Phipps
Got a gold in the 2020 games
France are quite good. Wales are not.
France 158 - 6 Wales
Let’s hear Max Boyce do a fucking song about that.
Is wheelchair rugby what ordinary rugby players play after they’re forced to retire from the regular game after about three seasons?
Brutal, bruising, tense match but see ya later Frenchies.
