What is ITRA Tag Rugby?
A minimal contact team game with each player wearing a pair of Tag shorts with a Velcro patch on either hip, the mode of play is similar to Rugby League with attacking players attempting to dodge, evade and pass a rugby ball while defenders attempt to prevent a score by "tagging" their opponent – ie pulling a Velcro tag from the hip of the ball carrier.
There are seven players on a mixed team - usually four lads and three girls. The attacking team has six plays to score a try, which are worth one point for a guy and three points for a girl.
