Rugby Tag - very exciting game in Paszkówka (Poland)

Within the framework of Comenius project our pupils got to know rules of sports new disciplines. We have started to play the game „Rugby Tag”, which principles are a little bit different from the original game of the Rugby.The object of the game is to score a try by placing the ball with a downward pressure on or behind the opponents' goal-line. The ball can only be passed sideways or backwards through the air, not handed to another player. If the ball is handed to another player or passed or knocked forwards (towards the opponents' goal-line) then a free pass is awarded to the non-offending side, unless advantage occurs.

In order to keep the game flowing, referees should play advantage wherever possible. All players wear a tag belt around their waist with two tags attached to it by Velcro positioned over each hip. Tag belts are to be securely fastened and any excess belt is to be tucked away so that this cannot be pulled by mistake. Tag belts are to be worn outside of shirts and not obscured in any way. Referees are to be watchful for tags being wrapped around the belt preventing them from being pulled off. The only contact allowed between the two teams is the removal of a tag from the belt of the ball carrier. Any other type of contact on the ball carrier, such as shirt pulling, running in front of or barging the ball carrier, forcing the ball carrier into touch, etc must be penalised with a free pass and the players reminded of the rules.
The game of TAG Rugby should be enjoyed by all involved. Tag Rugby is a fun and exciting game that both male and female players of all ages and ability can enjoy
