Roosters PDRL Side Back in Action for 2022

The Sydney Roosters Physical Disability Rugby League side is back in action for season 2022, and is thriving after an influx of new personnel. 

One of the foundation clubs of the NSWPDRLA - the New South Wales Physical Disability Rugby League Association - the Roosters are one of six teams in the competition, with matches played fortnightly in Cabramatta.

Now in his fifth season, Captain Rylee Lowe says that this season has been buoyed by the inclusion of a number of new players, which has added variety to the Tricolours on the field. 

"It's been good, we've had one win and one loss," Rylee said.

"The most positive thing for us has been the fact that we've had new players come in.

"They've all got different abilities so they're all able to do different things on the field, and they've contributed well to the team.

"For someone who has a disability and a physical one at that, it would be something they should definitely try.

"It's something that's great to be part of and great to see. To hear everyone's stories is a real eye-opener."

Players from various backgrounds congregate in the nine-a-side competition to pull on the famous Red, White and Blue and have recently been kitted out in their new jerseys donated from the Club.

For Rylee and his teammates, it was a gesture that will resonate with them for a long time to come. 

"That was actually a bit of a surprise," he said.

"Our manager Trish actually told me on the day of our second game that we'd be getting new jerseys.

"It was great to see the smiles on the boys' faces when they were expecting an old jersey, but they got a nice shiny white one with new shorts and new socks. It was like opening a present on Christmas Day.

"We really appreciate the support from everyone involved at the Club."
