We know that you’ve been asking almost weekly what was happening with this seasons Bull ‘n’ booze, and while it was delayed due to the WWRC taking place and the subsequent tying up of all of the IRFU referees.
The Format this year is going to be a little different as it has to take place at Rugby Season time so what we have decided to do is to re-jig the competition to create a midnight final under floodlights on the Friday night.
Games are going to start at around 7:00 pm on Friday night with the competition running straight through until the floodlit final.
We will announce the full competition and booking details through the IRFU booking system over the next few days.
Many thanks for your forbearance during the last few weeks as we tried to figure out how we were going to create a decent structure that gave you, the competitors, the standard of competition that you expect and deserve. We think that this format will best serve both you and us this season.
Bruff RFC launched the 11th Bull N Booze in Conjunction with Bruff RFC and former Lions, international and Munster Prop John “Bull” Hayes with the exciting news that this year the IRFU Tag Rugby squad are coming on board to help run the competition.
Bruff President Nicholas Cooke expressed his delight with the new association with IRFU Tag Rugby and with IRFU Tag Rugby Sponsors Volkswagen, through dealers Frank Hogan coming on board for the event.
Munster Branch Delegate Richard Leonard added ”I’m really looking forward to this year’s event. This is year 11 and we are kicking things up a notch or two to celebrate the last ten successful years. We have some exciting new things lined up for the evening after the rugby, a great band, and DJ of course until the early hours. We have the usual great tag rugby with our target of forty teams, Early booking numbers are fantastic so far. This season things are taking a new format with the IRFU on board for the event. Early camping bookings are already coming in as well, We have the usual breakfast on Sunday for the Campers, The campgrounds are of course free again to Players if booked in advance, and are open from Friday evening with a special event lined up this year to kick things off on the Friday night. The idea of this unique weekend of the Tag Rugby Calendar has always been to keep it friendly and promote the social side of Tag for everyone.”
“The competition format lends itself to matching up teams to their ability, so no matter whether you are highly skilled veteran tag players or are just outright beginners, we can promise that you will be matched up with teams that match your ability and ensure the most enjoyable day out. We can guarantee at least 5 games of tag with a great chance of getting in amongst the prizes no matter what your skill levels are. Once that is out of the way, we can promise a fantastic night out, make sure to sign up early for your chance to play Tag in the Bull’s Field”
