In another recent good news story, Canada Rugby League is proud to welcome Dr Alan Young to the Wolverines Family. CRL President Paul O’Keefe announced the news this morning that Dr Alan Young will be joining the CRL organisation. “This is another huge step forward in our progress to becoming a professionally run organization…This move will ensure our players are being treated and looked after exactly how International Rugby League athletes should be cared for here in Canada!”
The Canada Rugby League Association are wanting to set the standard for how Canadian athletes should be cared for. This move is a bold statement to both the public and our players of how our organization treats our athletes when they are playing here in Canada and on representative duties.
Dr Young has a long and proud association with rugby league, having himself played at University level and serving as club doctor at Super League’s Hull KR from 2005 to 2012. At Hull KR, Dr Young oversaw the development of the medical side of the organisation during their establishment as a prominent Super League entity. Dr Young worked extensively with the UK’s RFL medical department in the teaching of compulsory on field courses for all doctors and physio’s from 2010-2012 and served the England Knights 2011 representative side as part of the medical team.
Dr Young will commence on September 24th for Game 3 of the Americas Championship. The Wolverines are looking to overcome a strong USA team and seek vengeance for their Rugby League World Cup qualifying loss. The game is set to be a huge affair with the winner walking away with the inaugural Americas Championship Cup.
