Adam Hills has revealed The Last Leg will host the Physical Disability Rugby League World [PDRL] Cup draw live on the show next week.

Hills, who made the announcement on ITV’s Good Morning Britain also told viewers he intends to play for his home nation of Australia in the tournament which takes place in Warrington later this year.

The event will see four nations, England, Wales, New Zealand and Australia, compete against each other in the inaugural Physical Disability Rugby League World Cup at Victoria Park.

Hills said: “From Buckingham Palace to The Last Leg studio, rugby league certainly knows how to conduct a draw.

“29 July will be a big day for the PDRL World Cup. Not only learning the fixtures that will take place in Warrington, but also seeing Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe do something official for the first time in history.”

Jon Dutton, RLWC2021 Chief Executive, said: “Not only are we delighted to host the PDRL World Cup showcase event as part of our commitment to be the biggest, best and most inclusive rugby league world cup in history, but we are thrilled to have the support of our tournament ambassador Adam and everyone on The Last Leg.

“To bring the sport of PDRL to this new audience is a huge step for us in our ambition to create a real impact.”

The PDRL World Cup showcase event will take place in Warrington from 23 – 30 October.
