Great Britain World Cup Squads Announced

Try Tag Rugby are the official Great Britain delegates to the International Tag Federation and the European Tag Federation and we are delighted to announce the final Great Britain squads for our 2015 International campaign to the Tag World Cup in Australia in December. There were some really tough decisions to be made through the lengthy selection process, but the teams selected are looking to be our strongest outfits to date. 

Commiserations to the players who missed out on the final cut. For those of you who have missed out on selection, there will be more opportunities to represent Great Britain in 2016, as we are in initial discussions to host touring teams from New Zealand, Tonga and Ireland.

Thanks very much to Knight Frank LLP who are currently sponsoring the Great Britain Tag Rugby Squads. We are also looking for further sponsorship to reduce the costs for the players, who are funding themselves to travel out to Australia for the Tag World Cup. If you know a company that would be interested in sponsoring, please e-mail garnetmackinder@trytagrugby.com for more information and to discuss options.
