This is the story of three Wakefield Trinity Physical Disability Rugby League (PDRL) players who took the opportunity to visit Australia, play at one of the great stadiums, meet a living legend and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime.

Ben Nicholson, Connor Lyne and Darren Dean play for Wakefield Trinity PDRL and all have a physical disability. This remarkable video tells their tale of overcoming adversity, not letting it stop them enjoying their sport and then grasping every opportunity that presents itself. 

As Darren says, "Every setback is an opportunity. I didn't ask for cancer, nor did I want to be disabled but wow, what a life I am living."
