The YFCU’s annual tag rugby tournament, which is run in association with Danske Bank, is kicking off on Tuesday 28th July 2015.

The tag rugby tournament will take the form of two sections, junior (age 12-16) and senior (age 16-25).

Teams should consist of seven players with up to four substitutes. At least three girls must make up each team.

Winners of the county heats will then proceed to the final which will be held on Friday 7th August at Banbridge Rugby Club.

The tournament is run with the help of the IRFU Ulster Branch who will be on hand at the heats to give clubs some tactical advice.
