Learning Disability Rugby League will return to the Halton Stadium in 2019, as Widnes Vikings look to build on the success of the team’s inaugural season.

Training sessions will run every Tuesday at the Halton Stadium, 6pm-7pm, and will resume on 15th January following a break due to the Festive Period. The cost of each session will be £2 per person, will all funds going back into the Learning Disability team for the 2019 season.
