The second annual UK Tag Nationals took place on Saturday 21st September in London.
This year 23 teams took part from nine UK regions competing across mixed, men’s and women’s categories.
Teams played each other once during the round robin stage of the tournament with the top two teams then progressing to the finals. The round robin stage saw some excellent games and some impressive performances.
As expected the London teams were the teams to beat, but if any of the London teams went into the tournament thinking the regional teams could be taken lightly, then results soon started to show this wouldn’t be the case. Worthy of special note were Yorkshire who made it to both the men’s and mixed finals and Bristol who, in only their second year of operation, only narrowly missed out on getting to the mixed final.
In the women’s open final, South London beat West London in a closely fought contest, with West London going down 3-1. In the men’s open final North London were victorious over a dogged Yorkshire side who competed well, North London winning 2-0. In the mixed open final, South London were given an early scare by Yorkshire who went 2-0 up, but player of the tournament (mixed) Anita Snowdon ensured a win for Souths with two box tries which ultimately sealed a 6-2 victory.
