  • The tournament shall be run in a league format with the top teams from each league playing in a final*
  • Substitutes are unlimited and can be made at any time, with the referees permission
  • In the event of a draw in finals, the ‘golden try’ rule applies, i.e the first team to score a try in ‘extra time’ will be the winners.






  • The object is to score a try by placing the ball down in the opponents try area, by evasive skills or passing the ball backwards (i.e towards their own try line).  There is no kicking or contact in TAG rugby.
  • Each player wears a belt with 2 TAG’s (one on either side), to make a tackle a defender pulls off one of the TAG’s of the ball carrier and shouts TAG.
  • After being TAGGED, the ball carrier must stop (within 3 steps), and pass the ball to a team mate immediately, they then collect their TAG from the tackler and continues with the game.
  • A ball carrier must not prevent being TAGGED buy hiding their belt, or knocking a would be tacklers arm away.
  • The TAGGER is out of the game until they give the TAG back to the tackled player.  They must not interfere, TAG or try to stop a pass until the TAG has been returned.  TAG’s must not be thrown on the floor
    • If a TAG is made whilst a player is scoring a try the TRY is allowed.
    • After a TAG all players on the defending team must get their side of the ball and not interfere with an attempted pass.
  • For any infringement, or after a try or the ball has gone out the non offending / scoring team start with a free pass.  Opponents must be 7m back from the ball to allow this pass.
