LAST Saturday, 14 London Tag Rugby teams battled it out over two divisions for the Finsbury Park Tag Rugby Festival A grade and Social grade titles!
After a glorious week of weather in the capital, Saturday was a little milder and overcast but still good conditions for Tag Rugby.
In the A grade, the Chargers of the Acton competition finished top of the pool matches and set up a finals clash with Taguila Shots from White City. The Chargers were in great form in the pool stages going through undefeated while Taguila Shots lost only the one match. However the Chargers were too good in the end with a 10-5 victory in the final!
Taguila Shot’s Martin Ams was named “A grade player of the tournament” with the Charger’s Simon Kang named “player of the final”. Both award winners have been London Australia representatives.
In the Social grade, Moves Like Tagger from Barnes topped the pool stages alongside Eye of the Tagger from Highbury. The final was a very even contest with Moves Like Tagger just pulling away in the end with a 7-5 triumph.
Eye of the Tagger’s Luke Forrest was named “Social grade player of the tournament” with Moves Like Tagger’s Steve Drury named “player of the final”.
