The 2018 IWRF World Championship Qualification Tournament will be held April 2 - 9 in Notwill, Switzerland. The top four teams of this qualifier will be invited to attend the 2018 IWRF World Championship.
Our NZ team, the Wheel Blacks, depart 29th of March flying for 24 hours to reach Switzerland. It seems to me that the flights alone will be a tough challenge. Even with these tough flights, we are sure that our team will fly well and go on to be in the top four of this qualifier.
The following are the selected Wheel Blacks team who continually work hard, commit huge amounts of time and energy to high performance wheelchair rugby.
