Tag Rugby Competition 2019

 

20 teams entered this year’s rearranged Tag Rugby Competition. The Competition was cancelled the week before due to storms.10 teams competing in the Small Schools Competition and 10 teams competing in the Large Schools. The day was filled with glorious sunshine. The children’s enthusiasm was clear to see as each school arrived to this inspiring venue!  A big thank you to Shelford Rugby Club once again who played host and kindly supported what has become a very popular event in the Cambridge School Sports Partnership competition calendar.

Building on the success of last year schools were keen to get involved and take part. It’s great to see this competition grow into a real spectacle.

Cath Heron Partnership Manager for Cambridge School Sports Partnership said “It was fantastic to see so many children enjoying tag rugby. It is a difficult sport to get to grips with. All schools had obviously spent time practicing their skills and tactics so they were fully prepared for a morning of intense competition. Shelford Rugby club have always supported the event and it is wonderful for the children to experience a community club. This shows them where they can carry on the sport outside the school field”.
