On Saturday 5th May we welcomed over 80 young Tag Rugby players to our Match Day Tag Rugby challenge at Adams Park Stadium to provide a demonstration during the half-time of London Wasps v Newcastle Falcons.

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.

For this massively important fixture Aviva Premiership fixture we welcomed:

  • High Wycombe RUFC U6s vs Windsor RFC U6s
  • Brighton RFC U7s vs Marlow RUFC U7s
  • High Wycombe RUFC U7s vs Windsor RFC U7s
  • Marlow RUFC U7s vs Windsor RFC U7s
  • Galleywood Infant School U7s vs High Wycombe RUFC U7s
  • Downs Junior School Year 5/6 (Brighton) vs Juniper Hill School (Flackwell Heath, High Wycombe)

The Brighton RFC U7s Head Coach said after the event, "The boys had a fantastic day, totally focussed on their bit and clearly felt that Wasps was their team, cheering them all the way. Thank you so much for organising these matchday challenges, which could clearly be a big distraction on a big match day, but provide so much excitement for the kids. All best wishes to everyone at Wasps next year, and thank you for everything that Wasps has done for Brighton this year."
