Tag Rugby action
During the half-time of our game against Saracens on Sunday 12th February we welcomed young Tag Rugby players for our Match Day Tag Rugby Challenge from Community Partner Clubs Chesham Stags RUFC, High Wycombe RUFC and Tring RUFC. The teams were photographed on the pitch before the main game with London Wasps players Jeremy Castex and Tom Rees.
What is Tag Rugby?
Tag Rugby is a game played by teams of seven players. Each player wears a belt that has two velcro tags attached to it. The defenders have to pull one of the velcro tags from the ball-carrying attacking player, to force the player to pass the ball. The game is fast and exciting and develops the players’ agility, balance & coordination while focusing on the FUNdamental core skills of non-contact rugby.
After the Tag Challenge, Ben Smiley, Community Rugby Coach told told wasps.co.uk, "It is always fantastic to see young rugby players playing on the same stage as their heroes and role models. We were delighted to be able to offer a superb surface for the games to be played on and always appreciate our crowds' reaction to watching these young players in action. We would like to pass on our thanks to each group leader for making this opportunity possible for their members."
