Sadly our league has been postponed in line with Government guidelines – we look forward to kicking off our games again on October 15th.
We are excited to announce that we are once again partnering up with IRFU Tag to run an Autumn series tag tournament!
The games kick off on Thursday September 3rd and will run for 6 weeks.
Team Registration will cost €350 with an €80 deposit payable online and the remainder payable at the venue when the season commences. We ask that all teams register online in advance as players will need to complete the online COVID-19 health declaration which will be sent to captains ahead of the first night.
Swords Tag Rugby is following the COVID-19 public health guidelines – this means that numbers are limited to 15 players per pitch per session. More information is available from the Irish Rugby website
Tag rugby is a 7-a-side mixed gender sport played with a minimum of 3 female team members. Tag is one of the fastest growing sports in Ireland and is a good grounding for anyone interested in becoming involved in Rugby.
Teams are allowed 6 attacking set of play per turn. An attacking play is stopped when a defending teams player pulls a tag from the attacking ball carriers shorts. Play is resumed when the ball is rolled between the attacking players legs. If after 6 plays the attacking team fails to score a try the ball is turned over to the opposing team. Teams score points from a try with a male try being worth 1 point and female try counting for 3 points.
