Bruff RFC Tag Rugby team competed at the International Tag Rugby Festival in England over the June Bank holiday weekend. Twenty teams from all over England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland as well as Fijian side travelled to Rochdale outside Manchester for the first event of its kind to be hosted by the RFL in the UK.

The Bruff touring squad consisted of club members as well as tag players and referees who were involved in our Spring League, in addition we were delighted to be joined by 2 friends from Wigan who were adopted Irish for the weekend! The team displayed some good tag rugby skills in the blazing sunshine, winning 3 of their 4 pool matches to qualify for the plate semi-final. Up against a tough Scotish side, Bruff were narrowly defeated 8-6 in the semis.

We were delighted to catch up with many Irish ex pats living in Manchester who came along on the Saturday afternoon to cheer us on, including Apryl O’Rourke and family.

What we lacked on the pitch we made up for on the dance floor and the locals didn’t know what hit them when the team arrived at the clubhouse on Saturday night, dressed Hawiain style beachwear!!

Thanks a million to all the squad who represented Bruff over the weekend!

Our hosts Rochdale Swarm tag rugby club showed us a fantastic time with a great line up of entertainment organised all evening. We plan to make this an annual trip. Rochdale Swarm are already planning a return visit to our “Bull n Booze” Tag Festival on 15th August and a Scottish and Welsh side have also expressed interest in travelling over. It promises to be the biggest and best festival yet, will places filling up very fast. If your team is up for the challenge, enter now by emailing or call 087-9312817

A great night, here are some pictures given to me by Gráinne from last Thursday nights event.

I would like to take this opportunity to give a sincere thanks to Gráinne and David O’ Keeffe for all of the great work done in organising the Twilight Tag League not only for the last two months but for at least two months before this. Without all of the great work done by them, the event never would have taken place.

Also we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you especially for your support this season, it made it the best season to date and we hope to expand things even further next year.

Sorry for the delay in posting the pictures but here they are.

A poem written by Ray O’Brien, a tag rugby player from the team Tottally Inform Taggers:-
Week 5 approaches and the legs feel strong, the thought of charging over another group nearly derives a song,
12 TITS stand together with determination on their faces, about to put that Kellogs Pun through their paces,
This Special K team are a team of teachers, pity they will spend there night weeping on the bleachers,
Now youth is something they have on their side as their average age is 25,
But wait don’t check your run, as we have Chief Running Bear O Driscoll driving us on,
Fast Hands Michael will break down the team with his snipping runs, not from his bum!!
And you’ll have High Tower Mikey with our Fag dispensing victory dance as he lays his ball on the line (Rugby Ball that is)
To finish them off I propose the milk, this will make them soggy and surely they’ll split,
to allow our beautiful backrow of ladies to drive through and score, for a 9 point victory wouldn’t want more!
So Cheers TITS cheer and Shake I beg, for Its victory that awaits us, when this shower of taggers are bate!!!!!!
