Brain Health Fund inspires Adrian Morley to tackle our Wild Atlantic Adventure

Rugby League Hall of Fame inductee and proud RL Cares ambassador Adrian Morley is the latest sporting great to accept the challenge of tackling our epic cycling fundraiser, the Wild Atlantic Adventure.

Adrian, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2022, will head for Ireland next month to ride 300 miles in four days along the island’s rugby southern coastline between Cork and Limerick.

His involvement will see him complete a hat-trick of RL Cares rides, having cycled with the charity from Niagara Falls to New York city on the Empire State 500 two years ago and over the Pyrenees between Biarritz and Perpignan in 2023.

The former Leeds Rhinos, Sydney Roosters, Bradford Bulls, Warrington Wolves, Salford, England and Great Britain forward will saddle up alongside 20 other riders including his former Great Britain team-mate Gareth Ellis and women’s RL legend Andrea Dobson.

“I’m really looking forward to another big challenge and to helping such an important cause,” said Adrian. “The rides in the States and France were really tough and I have no doubt that Ireland won’t be easy, especially in the mountains, but that’s part of the fun!

“One of the things you miss when you retire is the physical challenge of pushing yourself and the camaraderie of achieving your objective as part of a tight-knit team: the RL Cares rides deliver that in spades and it’s a privilege to be involved.

“I’m especially pleased to have the chance to help the RL Cares Brain Health Fund: all the proceeds from the ride will pay for education and support programmes for current and retired players on things like brain health and memory loss, which are hugely important.”
Adrian will once again be joined on the ride by his business partner Neil Farrow, a fellow director at Frameworks Recruitment who are generously hosting a charity golf day in aid of RL Cares at Ellesmere Golf Club near Manchester on the afternoon Friday July 12.

The cost is just £320 for a team of four and includes 18 holes of golf on a brilliant course, refreshments and dinner. To book please email Neil ( or Adrian (

The Wild Atlantic Adventure will also feature representatives of Rugby Players Ireland, the organisation that delivers player welfare services to rugby union players across Ireland.

The ride takes place in association with Boiler Central, a Wakefield-based central heating company who supply, instal and service central heating systems across the UK.
