After kicking their season off in style last month, our wheelchair side have secured their spot in the Wheelchair Challenge Cup Semi Final, where they will look to continue their winning ways.

In a new format, revealed for the 2024 Wheelchair Challenge Cup, it was confirmed that the Rhinos would take on the Challenge Trophy Winner in the Quarter Final of the competition.

The Quarter Final saw victory for our side who faced two-time Challenge Trophy Winners, Hereford Harriers, which finished with a full-time score of 84-12.

After a 70-32 win over Halifax Panthers, it is Wigan Warriors who will join Leeds Rhinos in the Semi Final, in a repeat of last year’s Grand Final meet.

Although the two teams met for a pre-season friendly earlier this year, which saw both our Super League and Development sides take part in the action, it will be all to play for as they both compete for a place in this year’s Wheelchair Challenge Cup Final.
