The exact structure of your league will be communicated early in the season. Depending on the number of teams and scheduled weeks, the winner may be decided on a first past the post basis or you may have a number of weeks of finals.

The player of the match is decided by the match referee. They will look for a player who has performed well and played within the spirit of the game, particularly adhering to the player code of conduct.

Whilst we consider Tag Rugby a very safe sport which can be played by players of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels, like all sports there is a small risk of injury. There is also a very minor risk of sustaining a bad injury. This is why Try Tag Rugby through our partners the RFL provide Personal Accident Insurance to all registered players in case of catastrophic injuries.

Thankfully since beginning in mid 2009, and with tens of thousands of matches played, we have had no such events take place in our leagues. We strongly hope that no Try Tag Rugby player shall ever suffer such an injury. However with our Personal Accident Insurance we have the peace of mind that if anything bad was to happen to one of our players, they would have insurance cover. To make sure you are covered, please make sure that you and all the players in your team are correctly registered by filling in all the details in your online profile and confirming your email address.

It is the team captain’s responsibility to check the score at half-time and full-time with the referee. If the team captain thinks there is a discrepancy, they should raise the issue immediately.

If your team would like to query the result of a match, you should contact us as soon as possible after the match, and certainly no later than one week after the match. Once the week period has passed, we will not be in a position to change match results.
