Under 11 Tag rugby County Champions

November 7, 2018

For those of you who are not familiar with Tag rugby, it is a game of non contact rugby where possession of the ball is won by pulling tags from the waist of opposing players. When a team looses six tags, possession is handed over to the other team. Tries are the only score and the ball has to be carried forward not kicked. It’s a game which requires fast hands and the speed to run with the ball while dodging opponents so as not to loose your tags. When the opposing team has the ball its all about the ability to pull tags from opponents to regain possession. For the community games competition, teams are seven aside selected from a panel of twelve. But there must be a minimum of two girls on the field of play at all times.


Having won the under 11 county finals last year the boys and girls of Drangan and Cloneen were all out to retain their titles. In this years semi-final our lads played silvermines and ran out comfortable winners on a score of 7 trys to 2 trys. Cashel provided the opposition for the final and again the boys and girls of Drangan and Cloneen were much superior winning the final by 5 trys to nil. So well done to all concerned especially the coaches Billy Clancy and Eamon Murphy who give of their time to train our teams each week. They now look forwasrd to the munster finals which will be held in UL limerick on june 5th.

Lets hope they can bring back a Munster title.
