Fan Complaint Leads to Better Access at Rodney Parade

Newport Gwent Dragons Rodney Parade Stadium has made significant steps towards better access and inclusion for wheelchair users due to the endeavours of determined supporter Steve Parrish, who attends games with his son Karl who has celebral palsy.
