THIS Saturday will see a clash of the titans in the northern hemisphere Tag Rugby world when the Chargers take on Tumeke at the Wasps Tag Rugby Festival at Twyford Avenue Sports Ground in Acton.
The Chargers won this year’s Pig N Porter Tag Rugby Festival in Limerick which is the biggest tag rugby festival in the world, where they defeated some of Ireland’s finest teams to lift the trophy. They are also the Finsbury Park competition back-to-back champions.
Tumeke won this year’s London Tag Rugby Championships which is the UK’s biggest tag festival by defeating London’s premier teams as well as the Bircroft Panthers who travelled over from Dublin and have been the all-Ireland champions on numerous occasions.
The Wasps Tag Rugby Festival which will be played at the London Wasps training grounds in Acton from 12pm to 5pm on Saturday, 13October will see both of these champion teams battle it out for tag rugby supremacy. There will also be a host of other sides looking to steal the limelight away from the two champion outfits.
In the Mixed social division, the Cyborg Sharpshooters from Reading will start as favourites but will have to get through the likes of Phibbers, Tagerbomb and Tags McGee to lift the trophy.
