Totton’s Aaron Phipps has been selected to represent Team GB in the inaugural King Power Quad Nations Tournament.

Paralympic medallists from Australia, Japan, the USA and Great Britain, the European champions, will be up against each other from March 9-11 at the Leicester Arena.

Following London 2012, Aaron took time away from the international stage to concentrated on his work and family life but remained playing club rugby for Solent Sharks.

Last year he returned to high level training with the goal to achieve selection back onto the GB team.

“To be back in the GB team for the first time since 2012 is really exciting for me,” said the father of two.

“It’s a different team and a different performance and coaching staff and I am having to learn fast.

“But I’m enjoying it and am looking forward to mixing it with some old adversaries when we play Australia, USA and Japan.”

Great Britain will be looking to capitalise on home court advantage as they take on the world’s best.

One of the only full-contact disability sports, Wheelchair Rugby (originally called Murderball) is played by two teams of four who aim to score by carrying the ball across the opposing team’s try line.

Wheelchair Rugby has been an integral part of the Paralympic and Invictus Games since the 2000 Paralympic Games in Sydney.
