As partners of the Rugby Football League and managers of the Great Britain Tag Rugby League team we would like to wish all teams, but in particular the home nations, the best of luck for the upcoming Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair Rugby League World Cups.
The team at Try Tag Rugby can’t wait for things to kick off this Saturday in Newcastle with England vs Samoa in the men’s tournament and are equally looking forward to the start of the Women’s and Wheelchair tournaments kicking off a few weeks later at the start of November.
Try Tag Rugby is a sport that prides itself on being inclusive and helping to make the sport of Rugby League accessible. Try Tag Rugby therefore applauds the fact that the Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair World Cups are all taking place at the same time and on an equal stage, a first for any sport, not just Rugby League.
As well as the excitement and spectacle of seeing some of the best athletes in the world competing against each other in all three tournaments, we are looking forward to the increased profile Rugby League is set to enjoy in the UK during the next couple of months.
With all 61 games set to be available on the BBC, lots of people across the UK are set to see their first games of Rugby League either live or on the TV screen for the first time.
As an accessible and exciting minimal contact form of the game, Try Tag Rugby is looking forward to welcoming people who watch the World Cup and are inspired to pick up a ball and give a version of Rugby League a try.
