The Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup comes to St Wilfrid’s!
On Friday 9th December, we were delighted to welcome back our very own ex-student and Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup winner Nathan Collins. Nathan and his England Captain team-mate Tom Halliwell came to visit us and brought the actual World Cup trophy with them!
Nathan and Tom held a Q&A session in the Year 8 Assembly, visited various areas of school and discussed their achievement with us. They were given a suitably heroic welcome to school; it’s safe to say that we’re extremely proud of Nathan’s sporting achievements.
England’s Wheelchair Rugby League World Cup team truly were world-beaters throughout the whole tournament. Their performances were an outstanding demonstration of athleticism, determination and exceptional commitment. Having to beat Australia ensured they had a tough road along the way and the final against France was an epic game.
Well done to England for winning the World Cup; especially to our very own Nathan Collins!
