Trinity take part in Hull inclusion festival

Wakefield Trinity took part in a day of inclusion as we attended Hull FC & Hull KR’s joint inclusion festival on Saturday.

To celebrate the sport for all Trinity took both their Physical Disability and Learning Disability sides across the M62 to the East Riding of Yorkshire to take part in a special event organised by both the Hull clubs & the RFL.

Starting with PDRL, 2023 has been hugely successful for Lee Whiteley’s side so far this campaign, falling to defeat once throughout the whole season so far, and Saturday brought no change.

Starting with a stern test against newly-formed Hull KR, Rovers put on a good showcase on Saturday, showing the recent headway the Foundation has made.

However, it was Trinity who took the spoils in the end, Michael Brown showing his pace and skill throughout the contest as Trinity ran over four tries to take a 28-6 victory in the opening game of the day.

The side’s unbeaten streak didn’t end there though, with Warrington the next side to fall at the hands of Trinity.

With the weather taking a turn for the worse, Trinity maintained composure, Brown, once again, showing his speed to leave the Wolves defenders in his wake and touch down before a try in the latter stages put the game out of reach.

Nervy moments followed towards the end of the contest, but Trinity held out to take the victory, extending their time at the top of the table.

Alongside PDRL, our Learning Disability side also took part in their own festival held at the Allam Sports Centre. Having split the side up into two teams, Trinity played a round-robin festival against fellow Super League sides, once again showing their passion for the game of Rugby League.

As a club with inclusion at the forefront of our minds, Trinity was delighted to be invited to the day’s proceedings and was pleased to enter two teams into the festival We thank both Hull KR, Hull FC & the RFL for their hospitality.
