The team at Try Tag Rugby are delighted to announce the London Residents squads which will be taking on the Great Britain & Ireland World Cup squads on Saturday, 21st July as part of their preparations for the 2012 Tag Rugby World Cup to be held in Auckland, New Zealand in December.
The three match series in the Men's & Mixed formats were scheduled to be played at the Finsbury Park athletics stadium but due to the constant wet weather recently, the pitches are currently unplayable.
The series between the London Residents Vs Great Britain & Ireland World Cup squads will now take place at Twyford Avenue Sports Ground in Acton with the first match kicking off at 12pm.
The series will consist of three x 40 minute matches in each of the Men's & Mixed divisions throughout the day and be played under International rules.
The London Residents squads are made up of players residing in London regardless of nationality and on paper look to offer some strong opposition to the World Cup squads.
This will be the second ever series the London Residents have participated in. In 2011, the London Residents fought out a three game series against the world champion, Oztag Australia squads in Mixed, Men's and Men's over 30's formats.
The London Residents squads are as follows:
Note: 1-2 male players to be added
All players are advised to arrive no later then 11.15am at Twyford Avenue Sports Ground so you have time to get changed, warm up etc... The first fixture will start at 12pm sharp.
After the 3 match series there will be an after match presentation at the Wasps FC onsite bar and an after party at the nearby Chatsworth Pub. There will be some fantastic Tag Rugby on display and spectators are welcome to attend! We hope to see you there.
