THE London Tag Rugby community is eagerly awaiting the popular International Cup tournament on Saturday, 9 June at Twyford Avenue Sports Ground in Acton which will see 15 teams battle it out across three divisions.
London Australia will be represented in all three divisions which are Mixed A grade, Men’s & Mixed social grade.
London Australia are the reigning champions in the Men’s division having never lost a match in three International Cup tournaments, while the Mixed A grade side has only ever lost one match which was the final at the last International Cup tournament.
At the time of going to print, only the London Australia Mixed A grade side had been selected with arguably one of the strongest line ups ever, on paper. The team consists of: Elle Baltra, Dane Challenor, Kellie Dowdell, Lauren Jolly, Arron Lombardo, Adam Madigan ©, Tom Parsons, Phoebe Robins, Jay “Ringo” Wilkinson, Jessica Willemse, Nicholas Wong & Patrick Wright.
