Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
At the end of the summer there will be three Australian Oztag teams touring Ireland to play in a three match Tag Test Series in August. It is planned to have the first test as a curtain-raiser to one of Ireland's World Cup qualifying matches.
There are two leagues running during June and July this summer. The Men's Max' League is for under 20's, Junior and Senior rugby players, while the Mixed Social' League is for men and women playing together on the same team. This league has proven particularly popular with lots of corporate/business teams entering.
Tag Rugby is a 7-a-side non-contact sport, played by male and female adults of all ages and mixed abilities. The idea is to pull a velcro' tag from an attacking players belt that forces the player to pass the ball. Players do not have to have any previous rugby experience, as it is a non-contact game that is fun, fast, and skilful and which compliments a range of other sports! At all our venues the post match craic' is great with BBQ's and entertainment in the clubhouse afterwards during the long summer evenings.
There are a limited amount of places available for interested teams in Cork, Ulster and Limerick. If you have not already entered a team, do so now on our website www.tagrugby.com or Email firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: Simon Bewley 086-2269048.
Closing date for team registration Thursday 30th May 2002.
