Tag Rugby FAQs

I’ve never played any rugby before. Can I still play?

Of course you can! There is ‘no contact’ in Connacht Tag Rugby. It is easy to pick up as well as great fun. Leagues are graded according to ability.

What do I need in order to play?

To start with, the only truly compulsory accessory required is a pair of approved Tag rugby shorts.

They must be shorts (made by any manufacturer) that bear ‘no’ pockets and sport a velcro patch on each hip for a tag to be attached upon.

How many on a Tag team?

The recommended squad size for a Tag team is 12-14 players. During a game, each team must have no more than seven players on the field of play at any one time. Of the seven players on-field, three must be female.

Am I automatically insured playing?

The IRFU recommends that each player undertake their own Personal Accident Insurance cover against any injury sustained from playing the game itself during the Tag rugby season.

Where can I find the Rules of Tag Rugby?

The updated edition of the IRFU’s Laws of Tag Rugby are downloadable HERE.
