With Summer Leagues at many host clubs commencing in less than two weeks from now, leagues are being closed off as they reach capacity ahead of the 2015 season kicking off.
Volkswagen Tag places are at a premium in many host clubs even more so than last season.
An expanded list of Spring Leagues is now over the halfway mark with most teams taking part already signed up to the Summer stage of the season.
Autumn leagues already being planned to continue on from the action-packed Summer.

With registrations as low as €;460 in some venues and still no higher than €;525 anywhere else, costs per player amount to no more than €;4 per week for the average team. This is unmatched anywhere else. Adding to this referees are coached and instructed by experienced referees from rugby’s governing body with it happening at actual rugby clubs, it is no wonder team numbers have increased upon this time last year.
Register your team on www.irfutag.ie if you are not already in as these places WILL be gone very promptly indeed.
