In 2018 we formed our own Rugby League side to prove that a stoma is no barrier to playing even -the toughest of contact sports and were amazed by the response.
Now in 2021 we’re preparing for our return to play and we’d love you to be involved. We play a mixture of rules depending on our opponents, from full contact RL to Tag or touch, and we’re always looking for new players. Our games are equally suitable for both male and female players regardless of your ability or experience. We’re about fun, friendship and #TacklingTheStomaStigma, so Play, coach, support or something different. Please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ve had some great success so far with some household names from the sport of Rugby League supporting us including Josh Charnley, Paul Anderson, and Anthony Gelling.
You can read Paul Anderson’s story here
Antony Gelling produced a fabulous video for us prior to our game at Chorley Panthers in June 2019 which you can watch here
We’ve also had some great media coverage and have featured in the following publications and programmes:
BBC News online, BBC Sport online, BBC 5 Live Rugby League podcast, The Guardian, Forty-20 Magazine, Proper sport, Kirklees TV, BBC Radio Lancashire, Rhubarb Radio, Howfen FM, Chorley Guardian, Lancashire Evening Post, Rugby League Express.
