To help celebrate Inclusion Round, Wests Tigers would like to promote that Rugby League is a way for all people to connect and feel like they truly belong. At half-time, sit back and enjoy our Physical Disability Rugby League side play an exhibition game of football while also hearing more from the club's important charity partners.
