Fantastic weather greeted the 14th annual Leeds Disability Tag Rugby Festival at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on the 23rd September, with 18 teams and over 180 disabled children, young people and adults taking part.
This fantastic festival, which sees teams competing from across Leeds, Yorkshire and the rest of the country, is a unique opportunity for players to grace the same pitch as the Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Carnegie. The event is organised by Leeds City Council in partnership with the Leeds Rugby Foundation, the Rugby Football Union and other key rugby providers and clubs across the area.
This year Leeds Rhino’s star and England International Carl Ablett was on hand to give all participants medals and certificates, along with information about where they can carry on playing rugby and other sports after the day.
A short video of the festival is available on the Leeds Rhino’s website:
