England RL coach Mark Roughsedge was in Gravesend last week to visit and coach the newly formed GRFC Gravesend wheelchair rugby league side and was very impressed with the standard that has already developed. So impressed in fact that he thinks Gravesend are already up for inter club matches. Moreover, there's the potential for Gravesend players not just to be putting on the black and white and playing national league wheelchair rugby against the likes of Bradford Bulls and Wigan Warriors in 2014 but to then aim one step further and play for their country.

A large crowd were entertained to a 11 try fest in G's 74-5 victory over Haywards Heath at Rectory Field on Saturday. Our picture above by Roger Gray (number 10 Gary's Dad) shows the action with just a few minutes to go. For more of Roger's photos click here http://www.flickr.com/photos/rogergrayrugby
