Largest ever Try Tag Rugby tournament takes place

The largest ever Tag Rugby tournament hosted by Try Tag Rugby took place on Saturday, with 90 teams taking to 18 pitches in Barn Elms, south-west London.

The record, previously held at 66 teams at London Champs in 2018, was surpassed resulting in over 1000 players taking part in the one-day event. 

Turtles followed up their past two London Champs tournaments wins (2017 & 2018) with a victory in the Tier 1 Cup, taking home the top prize of £400. The final went down to golden point after Turtles and Alpacas were tied at five-all after normal time, cheered on by a large crowd.
