Play Competitive Tag Rugby This September

With contact Rugby not expected back until at least the start of October, we are inviting men’s and women’s Rugby teams in and around the Leeds and Wigan areas to #GiveTagATry.

Tag Rugby (Oztag) is hugely popular with Rugby players in Australia, with one of the reasons being that the game play is as close as you can get to contact Rugby without the contact!

Enter our 4 Week Men’s and Women’s Adult Tag Rugby League

Taking the form of a mini league teams will get to play competitive Tag Rugby against a variety of opposition over the course of the 4 weeks.

A great way to add variation to training and get players used to playing and making decisions under pressure again.

Both men’s and women’s only leagues will be run at the following venues.

Leeds: Farnley Falcons, Farnley Sports Playing Field, Butt Lane, Leeds, LS12 5BD

Wigan: Ashton, 122 Low Bank Rd, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan, WN4 9RP
