Hugo’s Turtles take Summer Social Tag Rugby crown

On Saturday 40 teams took part in the tournament which formed part of the Summer Social sport and music festival in Richmond.

Teams played at Old Deer Park with the A-grade semi-finals and cup finals showcased on the gate pitches of Richmond Athletic Club and the A-grade finals on the main pitches with a healthy and vocal crowd in support of the teams.

In the A-grade final team Hugo’s Turtles (pictured right) defeated The Rebels 4-2, with Katie Fowler from the Turtles taking home the player of the final.
