Four VIS athletes selected for Ken Sowden Cup

VIS athletes Jayden Warn, Andrew Harrison, Jason Lees and Ben Fawcett have been selected in the Australian Steelers Wheelchair Rugby team to contest the upcoming Ken Sowden Cup in Melbourne.

The Steelers will be aiming to extend their unbeaten series reign against Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand at the five-match series from 14 – 17 March.

Head Coach Brad Dubberley said, “There’s absolutely a rivalry between Australia and New Zealand, you see that in any sport, and mate, I can tell you, we’ll be dirty if we lose.”

The Steelers will also compete at the 2019 Wildcat Clash in Arizona, USA, from February 22-24, where Australia’s leading female wheelchair rugby player, Shae Graham (2.0), will make her international debut.
