The Great Britain Tag Rugby teams are set for a new era after achieving their greatest set of World Cup results so far last summer! The road to the next World Cup starts now with registration open for trials ahead of two international engagements this summer.

Four sets of trials are being held on three dates across the country this year:

  • The Northern & Scottish UKTN Regional Tournament – Saturday 24th February – Heaton Moor RUFC – Open to players representing Edinburgh, Manchester, Sheffield, Wigan and Yorkshire as part of the 2024 UK Tag Nationals
  • The Southern & Midland UKTN Regional Tournament – Saturday 2nd March – Oxford RFC – Open to players representing Brighton & Hove, Bristol, Coventry & Warwickshire and Thames Valley as part of the 2024 UK Tag Nationals
  • The London UKTN Regional Tournament – Saturday 9th March – King’s House Sports Ground – Open to players representing North, East, South and West London as part of the 2024 UK Tag Nationals
  • The Open GBTR Trial 2024 – Saturday 9th March – King’s House Sports Ground – Open to all current and aspiring Tag players from across the UK, including UKTN players unable to participate in their own Regional Tournament

All players interested in trialling for Great Britain must complete the registration form at this link by 5pm Thursday 7th March. You will then need to follow this link to ensure that you can receive operational emails about trials and selection.

All 2023 Great Britain players are expected to retrial in 2024 so must register in the same way as new players.

Before registering for trials players should read the 2024 Great Britain Tag Rugby Player Brief. This brief will help you to complete your team preferences correctly according to the new GBTR selection model and make you aware of the dates, expectations, costs and code of conduct associated with Great Britain Tag Rugby representation in 2024.

The brief also includes a report on the 2023 GBTR player, coach and manager survey which has heavily influenced the design of the 2024 GBTR programme.

Selections will be announced on Thursday 14th March. Good luck to all players registering for trials.
