We are excited to announce the playing squads for the biggest and best UK Tag Nationals yet!
A total of 41 teams from the 10 Try Tag Rugby regions will descend on West Park Leeds RUFC on Saturday 21st May 2022 to battle for the crown of National Champions across four categories – Mixed, Women’s and Men’s Open and Men’s 40s.
This year’s tournament will be the first to take place outside of London and as such has seen unprecedented regional engagement with the host region Yorkshire naming a massive seven teams, with two in each of the open categories. This is the first time that Yorkshire has been able to name multiple teams within a category, joining South London and East London who also have the strength in depth to do the same in Mixed Open. South London will also enter two Women’s Open teams for the first time.
The debut of the Men’s 40s category has proved to be particularly popular with the majority of Try Tag Rugby regions entering, including a combined team from Manchester and Wigan. It is expected that an invitational team from Ireland will join the Men’s 40s pool to further raise the standard of the competition with invitations sent out across the other categories.
It promises to be a groundbreaking day in UK Tag Nationals history and therefore not one for spectators to miss! We will shortly be launching a combined ticket offer for this event and September’s British & Irish Cup which will be hosted at the same venue as well as details for following the live stream for those not able to attend.
Congratulations to all players selected today and good luck in May!
