Leeds Rhinos Foundation's PDRL team are set to play their second fixture against Wakefield Trinity PDRL on Sunday 8th April at the Mobile Rocket Stadium, kick off 5.30pm.
The Physical Disability team, who were formed this year, played in the UK's first competitive PDRL game against Warrington back in February and secured a 22-10 win. They will be aiming to make it back to make wins when they face Trinity PDRL in their first ever game.

Chris Godfrey, Disability Programme Coordinator for Leeds Rhinos Foundation and head coach for the PDRL side said: "The PDRL concept has come a long way in the past months, a number of new teams have expressed interest since our first game one of which were Wakefield, who we are really looking forward to welcoming into the PDRL fold.

"It is a pleasure for our lads to not only have played and been victorious in the inaugural PDRL game on British soil but to follow it up with the second too. The team continues to grow and more players are expressing interest in getting involved and two lads will be making their debuts on Sunday in Chris Young and Ben Rawlings, more players are welcome to come and get involved. In our last game we welcomed Alex Brooker into the team, but unfortunately he is injured for this game but is hoping to be involved in a future fixture."

Sunday's PDRL game is part of a double header at the Mobile Rocket Stadium and will be played following the Betfred Super League game between Wakefield Trinity and Leeds Rhinos.
