THIS year’s London Tag Rugby Championships will be the most sought after tag date, with a number of new sides signing up during the week to battle it out for the prestigious title.
With champion sides Churrr, South Field Sharks, Tumeke and Ireland powerhouses, the Bircroft Panthers already in the fold, Double Scrum & Coke and Tagquila Shots both from Canada Water have now entered the race for the 2012 London Tag Rugby Championship title!
The Tagquila Shots who include London Australian representative, Thomas Parsons, are the reigning champions at Canada Water and will be looking for a big tournament after finishing runners up at the last two one-day festivals which were the Finsbury Park Tag Rugby Festival in March and Rugby Rocks Richmond in April.
In the Men’s division, the Hardy Boyz from Finsbury Park are the early favourites but will have to get through the might of God Loves a Tagger & Wandsworth High Towers (both Wandsworth) first!
In the Mixed social division, last year’s champions, Trip & Chase are back to defend their title. They will have to battle it out against the likes of Colin (Richmond), Tagerbomb (Finsbury Park) & Westside Taginators (Acton).
