Super League presenter Adam Hills comments as club’s brilliant new initiative is revealed

Adam Hills is a well-known comedian and television host but also a rugby league fan and he landed every fan’s dream job of presenting rugby league live on television when he was announced as Channel 4’s Super League presenter for the 2022 and upcoming 2023 season.

As well as presenting the sport Hill, who is physically disabled having been born without his right foot, plays rugby league and recently featured in the inaugural Physical Disability World Cup where his Australian side went all the way to the final before succumbing to England.

He’s represented Warrington Wolves’ PDRL side as well and has now commented on a brilliant new initiative that the Wire are setting up in the community, which the side tweeted yesterday.

The Wire are set to start up junior PDRL training sessions for children aged seven through to sixteen which will be huge for fans of the sport who feel they can’t get involved due to a disability.

Hills responded to his beloved side’s new training sessions and plans with glee.

“I’ve been so keen for this to happen – Physical Disability Rugby League for kids. I wish this had existed when I was a kid. If you know someone that would love this as much as I do, details are included,” Hills tweeted as he shared the club’s news.

This is just one of many examples of working in the community and helping spread the game by Warrington, who prior to the Christmas period helped make food deliveries during the difficult weather conditions.

Hopefully this is an initiative that other Super League and professional clubs will follow in order to inspire the next generation and to give children the opportunity that Hills didn’t get until adulthood.
