Try Tag Rugby Join Parliamentary Rugby League Group
The Parliamentary Rugby League Group has welcomed Try Tag Rugby as an Associate Member.
Try Tag Rugby was launched as a commercial venture in the UK in 2009, and offers opportunities to play tag rugby league across London, Yorkshire, and the Thames Valley. It works closely with the RFL to deliver and increase participation in the minimal contact version of the game.
Joining as an Associate Member, Try Tag Rugby agree to the Group’s constitution and its singular aim to support the sport of rugby league. Associate Members are welcome to attend Group meetings, which are held monthly in the Palace of Westminster while Parliament is sitting, as well as the Group’s Annual Dinner.
Welcoming Try Tag Rugby was the Group’s Chairman and Leeds North West MP, Greg Mulholland. He said: “‘I am delighted to welcome Try Tag Rugby as an Associate Member of the Parliamentary Rugby League Group. Tag rugby league is an excellent alternative to full contact rugby league, and offers excellent opportunities for people to stay fit and healthy. Try Tag Rugby’s efforts to boost participation in rugby league are to be commended, and I look forward to welcoming them to a Group meeting in Westminster soon.”
Try Tag Rugby’s Chief Executive, Philip Browne, commented “We are thrilled to join the Parliamentary Rugby League Group. Our aim is to expose as many of the general public to tag rugby as possible, and I look forward to working with the Group to support rugby league in any way we can.”
