WITH all the Spring Tag Rugby competitions off and running and a record 94 teams competing across 10 venues, teams are now eying off the first one day festival of the year to add to their trophy cabinets!

The first one day festival of the year will take place at the popular Finsbury Park (31 March) which is Try Tag Rugby’s most popular venue with 21 teams participating at this venue last year. All the North London teams are very keen to head back to their old stomping ground and stake their claim for the title.

This year’s Finsbury Park Festival will see teams taking part from competitions all across London such as Balham, Barnes, Bermondsey, Highbury, Rotherhithe, Wood Green and even as far away as Acton.

The one day event will be run in two divisions with an A grade and a social grade. A few new teams have decided to use this tournament as a taster before committing to an eight week summer league.

It’s still not too late to sign up for this tournament that will attract an estimated 16-20 teams. Registrations close next Monday, 26 March. All details can be found at Trytagrugby.com

In other news, the last of the four Great Britain & Ireland World Cup open trials took place on Sunday at Balham. The World Cup training squads will be announced this week with a few Aussies eligible to qualify for Britain expected to be named in the squads.

If you would still like to get involved in a Spring competition, there is limited space available at the following competitions; Acton (Mon) – Females, Highbury (Mon) – Males, Southfields (Tues) – Females, Barnes/Highbury/Kingsbury (Thurs) – Males/Females

New individual registrations are welcome as this is a great chance to develop a network of friends if you are new to London.
