Scotland will battle against England, France, Wales, and Ireland for the chance to be crowned European Champions during four action-packed days of competition.
It follows Medway’s success hosting the World Cup in 2013 and the Four Nations tournament in 2014, which both attracted big crowds.
Scotland Coach Jamie Seery commented “we are delighted to announce the squad which will compete in September, we have seen great improvements in players over the year. This has been down to the training on going at the club sides plus we have had two very competitive internationals against Ireland. We have set ourselves an ambitious but very realistic target which, with this squad, I am very confident will achieve”.
He continued ” This is a very exciting time for Wheelchair Rugby League in Scotland with the Scottish Challenge Cup this month and our member clubs continuing to grow. This tournament gives us the chance to test ourselves against the best in the world two years on from the world cup.”
