Classifications Advisory Group

The committee was responsible for creating and implementing the sport’s first ever classifications framework, which is intended to minimise the impact of impairment and enables fair and equitable competition for players in all forms of disability rugby league. In 2021 it produced the Physical Disability Rugby League Playing Conditions and the Classification Manual, as well as introducing training for evaluators in Europe and Oceania ahead of the Physical Disability Rugby League World Cup in November 2022. In addition, IRL appointed Jamie Blair, an experienced professional in disability sports, as its first Head of Classification.
