I'll be watching too.  As a disabled person who helped set up a wheelchair basketball team in Featherstone I have an interest and also have 3 of my old team mates in the GB Squad this year!

Featherstone has it's own wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby teams.  Wheelchair rugby used to be known as Murderball and people have actually fractured their Sternum (Breast Bone) playing it!  I highly recommend you watch the Channel 4 coverage Raptor!
