LONDON’S Try Tag Rugby All-Stars successfully defended their 2011 title when they claimed the 2012 Malta International Tag Rugby Festival with a 6-1 win over Malta’s Birkirkara Falcons in the final on the weekend.
A slight breeze eased the 30 degree plus Maltese summer conditions for the 10 participating teams; including eight from Malta and one from Gozo – as the Try Tag Rugby All-Stars went through the tournament undefeated for the second successive year at Hamrun’s Victor Tedesco Stadium.
For the Try Tag Rugby All-Stars, London Australia representatives Sarah O’Neill and Belinda Walmsley were amongst the tournament’s best players, as the Pat Ginty led team of English, Irish and Australians, diverted all eyes to their pitch when putting in dominant displays in each of the pool fixtures.
The Try Tag Rugby tour to Malta included the 2012 Malta International Tag Rugby Festival and also featured a guided pub crawl, Malta sightseeing tour & Comino boat party whilst many new friendships and lasting memories were made.
