Try Tag Rugby to feature at St James’ Park
Try Tag Rugby, the Rugby Football League’s Tag Rugby League partner, will showcase Tag Rugby on the pitch during half-time of game three (Hull FC v Hull KR) on Sunday 20th May as part of the Betfred Super League’s Dacia Magic Weekend.
Last year, 65,407 people attended the event over the two days, the 3rd highest attendance ever for Magic Weekend.
In 2017, a London select team played a Yorkshire select team during half-time of game three (Leeds Rhinos v Castleford Tigers) at Magic Weekend, which was won by London 5-3.
The players taking part in this year’s Tag Rugby exhibition match at Magic Weekend include:
Males – Joe Barker, Doug Hann, Ross Hann, Ian Kerr, John Hickling, Darren Huck, Leon Nightingale, Chris Richards, Dan Ryan, James Vickers
Females – Zoe Cockburn, Bethany Hirst, Rachael Kearns, Jess Kirk, Ophelia Lightowler, Gemma Robinson, Kaela Thurston, Ceri Whittle
Referee – Matt Blades
Try Tag Rugby recently launched a brand-new league in Hull on Monday 14th May, so staging this exhibition game at half-time of the Hull derby is quite fitting.
Try Tag Rugby now run leagues in Bristol, Coventry & Warwickshire, London, Manchester, the Thames Valley and Yorkshire.
