ITRA Touch Rugby League 

The team at ITRA are excited to announce that we are diversifying our league offering to include Touch Rugby for the first time for summer 2019.

So, with that in mind, we set out to discover 'What is the difference between Tag Rugby and Touch Rugby?'

As is turns out, there are a number of differences in the rules of Tag and Touch Rugby.

The main obvious difference is a tag needing to be removed to constitute a tackle, as opposed to making a touch with Touch Rugby. The other main features of Touch that are different to Tag include:

  1. No kicking allowed.
  2. The ball is not allowed to touch the ground.
  3. No marker being allowed to stand in the ruck.

ITRA are launching our first Touch Rugby league for summer 2019. We will be hosting this league in UCD from the 29th May. If you are interested in participating, you can register your team at the link below:
