HEREFORD Harriers Wheelchair Rugby Club are recruiting new players as they prepare for a new season.

In only their third season playing rugby league the Harriers competed against the likes of Leeds Rhinos and St Helens in last year's Super League.

As a result of their success Alan Caron, Phillip Davies, Scotty Trigg-Turner, Mark Williams and Andrew Higgins have been selected to represent Wales in the upcoming Tri-Nations tournament.

Harriers Head Coach Lyndon Price is encouraging people from across the region try wheelchair rugby league.

He said: "The club has been going three years now and was raised from the Hereford Wheelchair Basketball team, we decided to form a rugby league team.

"It's a fantastic sport, is really supportive and is inclusive for all.

"It is a sport where those with and without disabilities play together.

"If you are feeling down then come and have a go. We have a great time playing.

"We are actively recruiting at the moment after some of our guys retired from our team.

"The nucleus of our team is Hereford based and our main sponsor is Fluid Master."

The club is also recruiting for a new junior section.

They train every other Sunday at Hereford Leisure Centre and start back after their break in October.

After a treble winning campaign the Harriers played in the sports' Superleague last season.

Price hopes that they can be more competitive in the coming campaign.

He added: "This year we haven't quite had the same success but have been playing against incredibly well drilled and supported teams who have been playing for 10 or 12 years compared to our three.

"So they have massive support in relation to us and it is a great standard of rugby.

"We finished second from bottom but would love to be back playing in the Superleague to give it a better go.

"We lost Gary Preece and Andrew Higgins to injuries last year and they are like our Jonny Wilkinson and Martin Johnson.

"When Gary came back we won our last two games. We are waiting to hear what league we will be playing next season but would like to be in the Superleague."

Along with being head coach for the Harriers, Jones is also assistant coach for Wales.

He said that the Hereford players who have earned their spot for the Tri-Nations had to work particularly hard.

He added: "They have had to work even harder to get their place in the team as I'm the coach.

"So it's a really great achievement for those five to be selected."
