Following Government approval last Friday of the RFL’s plan for a phased return to Community Rugby League, it’s been great to see Rugby Football League partners Try Tag Rugby back running leagues again this week.
With nearly 5 months since the last game, there has been much anticipation over Try Tag Rugby’s return with players chomping at the bit to get back out on the Tag Rugby pitch.
Helen from Coventry: “I’ve missed playing Tag rugby in lockdown massively. I took up running and started jogging 5ks and it was so dull! I just don’t get anywhere near the same kick as I do from playing Tag Rugby and being part of a team.”
There have been a number of guidelines/measures brought in both on and off the pitch to make the game COVID-19 safe and players have been thrilled to be able to get back playing a sport they love and seeing their team mates again.

Craig from Leeds posted after his first game back on Monday “Been a long 4 months of no Tag Rugby, but tonight we were back loving every minute of it, love this team and thankful to be a part of it....”
Try Tag Rugby currently run leagues in London, Bradford, Bristol, Coventry, Leamington Spa, Leeds, Manchester, Reading, Wakefield and Wigan.
If you would like to give Try Tag Rugby a go leagues are open to male and female players (14+) of all abilities including those who have never played Rugby before.
Players can register for leagues as teams or individuals to be placed on a team. Free taster sessions are also available.
