Turtles and London Scottish claim top titles at London Championships

The 2017 London Tag Rugby Championships took place on Saturday with 65 teams taking part. 

Turtles continued their dominance in 2017 one-day tournaments by claiming the Mixed A-Grade final, in a narrow 7-5 victory over the David Dimplebears.

The Men's grade was won by a team from London Scottish who defeated Two And A Half Men 5-3. 

The fastest player in tag race took place during the afternoon in front of a bumper crowd, Nick Wikes and Amanda Scarfo winning the titles for 2017.  

Teams from London, Leeds and the Thames Valley took part in the Championships held at Twyford Avenue Sports Ground in west London.

The number of teams surpassed the previous record of 47 teams in 2015. Over 750 players took part in the day, representing 65 teams across five tiers and 15 pitches. The after-party went on well into the night with teams enjoying the dancefloor until closing time.
