The objective of 'Play Rugby' is to introduce the rapidly growing sport to young players and encourage them to keep fit while having fun.

This form of rugby simulates mini rugby without the contact element, which makes it ideal for young people starting out in the game.

The players received their 'Play Rugby' packs which consisted of rugby balls, cones, tag belts, tags, bibs and a 'Play Rugby' guide to the game to assist teachers in running future tag rugby events at the school.
