Youth leaders tackle tag

Development of interest and sustainability in rugby took a step forward with the first tag rugby workshop for Foroige youth leaders in the Blanchardstown area.

Rather than just attend a youth project for two hours, Gerry McCleery (Fingal community coaching officer) spent the initial part of the period demonstrating some teaching skills to those involved in Foroige projects to help children play the game.

The coaches are hopeful of giving as much time to tag rugby as other sports, as they find it all-inclusive as it provides a platform for girls and boys to participate in sport on an equal footing.
