Luke Eves and Darren Fearn showed their support for Newcastle City Council’s Active 500 Olympic Programme last week by learning the art of wheelchair rugby.
Both players learned the skills of the game before stepping aside to let the youngsters show them how it is done.
The players then competed in a game against Leisure Services Team and the North East Bulls Wheelchair Rugby Team.
The lads saw plenty of action against each other with the game involving full on wheelchair to wheelchair contact.
Both players ended the game with big smiles and having really enjoyed the evening they admitted that they would love to play again.
Wheelchair rugby is a paralympic sport at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
