BRS Tag Rugby
As part of the social side of the BRS, we play Tag Rugby each summer.
Tag rugby is mixed gender, non-contact sport and is a perfect environment for fun and social get-togethers. The rules of the game are similar to rugby, except that players wear coloured velcro tabs on their shorts and there is no tackling! Instead your tags are removed from your shorts.
Beginners are welcome so pass on the message to anyone you think might be interested. We’ll go through the rules and how to play the game in the first few training sessions so everyone will be up to scratch by the first game.
To play you must have tag shorts, these are available from most sports shops. The games will be played on astro-turf but training will be in the park on the grass pitches so appropriate footwear is required.
The Tag Rugbees
The Tag Rugbees is our tag rugby team for the 2017 season! Captained jointly by our media officer Garvan Doherty and also long standing BRS member Donal Monaghan. We are currently playing in the Clontarf Road ITRA tag league and are going to the Pig n’ Porter tag rugby festival in mid July.
Below you can find our match results to date.
The Garden Gnomes
The Garden Gnomes was our tag rugby team for the 2016 season! Captained jointly by our media officer Garvan Doherty and also long standing BRS member Donal Monaghan. We played in the Clontarf RFC tag league and also travelled to Limerick to play in the biggest tag rugby festival in the world, Pig’n’Porter.
We trained weekly in the Albert College park beside DCU. We played competitively each week in Clontarf, however we welcome people who just want to train and learn the sport also. The team provides a chance to bond with other BRS members and have fun on the pitch.
Team Alan, the BRS tag rugby team for the 2015 season! Captained by Alan Harrison and Garvan Doherty. By far the most successful tag team the BRS have produced to date. The team, competing in the Clontarf astro league, sailed through and narrowly lost the league’s top final.
Team Alan heralded a new era in tag rugby for the BRS, with many new members joining the team we featured 12 players brand new to tag rugby. The success achieved by the team showing that new doesn’t necessarily mean bad.
