How many players on a Tag Rugby team?
In Try Tag Rugby competitions, a team is generally made up of seven people on the pitch at any time. In mixed leagues three of these must be female and four male. With space for full size pitches being limited in London, in recent years we’ve introduced 6-a-side and 5-a-side leagues on smaller pitches at a number of venues. 6-a-side mixed leagues are played with 3 male and 3 female players on the pitch, whilst 5-a-side leagues are played with 3 male and 2 female players. The number of players on the pitch for each league is noted in the league details.
The ideal number of players in your squad will vary depending on the commitment of your players. Generally we have found that most 7-a-side teams have a squad of around 12 players, having 7 guys and 5 girls. But if your players are highly committed, very fit and not wanting to spend time on the substitute’s bench you may wish to enter with a smaller squad
