NSW Physical Disability Rugby League
The Sydney Roosters are proud supporters of the NSW Physical Disability Rugby League and the Roosters Physical Disability Rugby League Team. The inclusive, modified game of Rugby League is for people with all types of physical disability.
The five-round competition starts in March and finishes with finals in September. In between the rounds, teams play demonstration games, All Stars vs Indigenous during NAIDOC week, City vs Country. Games are played under the rules of ‘The Australian Rugby League Laws of the Game 2010’ but are modified to suit the abilities of the individuals and to maintain their safety. The game is made up of two halves, each of twenty minutes and with a ten-minute interval. As per NRL rules a Try will be worth 4 points and a Goal 2 points. Able-bodied players can play PDRL, but not more than two per team are allowed on the field at any time.
