OCT

Sunday 12th October saw the first run out of Teignmouth Rugby Clubs Under 7’s versus Newton Abbot. It was for all of the Teignmouth players there first ever competitive tag rugby match and the future is looking good for the club as the youngsters did extremely well against a larger Newton Abbot team. The basics of tag rugby are only the player with the ball can be tagged and a tag is simply the removal by a defender of one of the two Velcro attached ribbons from the ball carriers belt. Ball carriers can run or dodge potential taggers but cannot fend them off, spin around or guard or shield their ribbons in any way. The defender then holds the ribbon above their head and shouts 'tag' for all to hear. Defenders must back off at least one metre from the ball carrier, allowing space for them to pass. They are not allowed to snatch the ball from the player's hand.

Teignmouth’s next game is away at Topsham on 26th October.
