This occasion is a very special one, as the RFL has been invited to attend a Disability History Month reception that is held at the Speaker’s House, with Dylan as one of the guests who will be representing the governing body and the sport in this national event.

With the opportunity to network out of the sport with many other inspiring people, supporters, sports, and livelihoods. It is a very important experience for Dylan as he continues his journey of development and growth to achieve his goals.

Everyone at the club is delighted for Dylan and we can’t wait to hear how the adventure goes!
