Tag Rugby League will operate alongside the popular Play Touch Rugby League programme that was launched by the RFL earlier in the year.

RFL Director of Participation and Partnerships, David Gent says: “We are very excited to announce our new partnership with Try Tag Rugby. Tag Rugby League provides the perfect addition to our non-contact offerings after the successful launch of Play Touch Rugby League earlier this year.”

Try Tag Rugby CEO, Phillip Browne added: “We are extremely excited to be working with the RFL in growing the sport of Tag Rugby League across England. This partnership with the RFL will take our sport to the next level in both the social and elite versions of Tag. We believe that with this partnership with the RFL, our launch in Yorkshire and other parts of the country will be a success and attract many new players to the sport.”
