Great Britain Tag Rugby World Cup Squads Announced
Great Britain Tag Rugby is pleased to announce the 2018 Tag World Cup squads.
Great Britain will be represented at the 2018 Tag World Cup in four divisions; Mixed Open, Men’s Open, Women’s Seniors (27+) and Men’s Seniors (30+). The Tag Rugby World Cup takes place at Coffs Harbour, Australia from 1st-4th November 2018.
The coaching teams of each squad narrowed down their train-on squads from 30 players to 20 with two non-travelling reserves. Training resumes for the squads on Sunday 29th July after a short break.
Great Britain Programme Director Toby Hartley said: “The levels of commitment and performance in training to date has been of a very high standard, and with the support of our Great Britain partners this standard is only set to increase.
“Congratulations again to all the players selected to represent Great Britain, every player has undoubtedly earned their seat on the plane to Australia and I’m sure this will reflect on the field at the 2018 Tag World Cup.”
