PRINCIPAL SPONSORS

 


 

Tag is a brilliant Mixed Social Sport,suitable for all shapes, sizes, ages and sporting abilities, where guys and girls play together in a competitive environment.

 

Former Hampshire player and Oxford University WRFC Captain Katie Sage has been selected to represent Great Britain in the International Tag Federation World Cup which will take place in Australia 3-7 December 2015.

 

Katie played for Hampshire between 2004 and 2008 and became an Oxford player in 2009 straight from school.

In her four years playing for the club, she gained three full Blues, one of them winning, before leading the 2013 squad to the first double victory in nine years, ensuring both the Panthers and Blues brought trophies back to Oxford.

She was also awarded player of the match in 2011 Varsity and Greatest Contribution to OUWRFC in 2013. Off the field, Katie achieved a First Class Honours in Jurisprudence from Pembroke College before going onto gain the Bachelors of Civil Law from Hertford College.

 

On leaving Oxford, Katie turned her attention from contact rugby to its non-contact cousin and took up playing Tag Rugby in March 2014.

Since then she has represented Great Britain Ladies in international series against Australia and Ireland, being named player of the series in the latter which GB won 3-0.

She also helped her team, Tumeke, secure the accolade of Champions of Europe in 2014 and they recently defended their title at The Pig’n’Porter, played in Limerick every July, which is the Northern Hemisphere’s biggest tag festival with 136 teams competing for the coveted Premiership Cup Winners title and accolade of European Champions.

 

In 2014, Tumeke, Katie’s London based team, won the championship for the first time and went back to defend their title this July.

The team breezed into the Final where they faced their toughest competition by far – the Soberlane Superfreaks (predominantly made up of Ireland’s mixed-open world cup team). With the Tumeke squad made up mainly of the GB mixed-open world cup team, not only were the teams playing for the title but also for the upper hand in December.

Soberlane were 2-0 up at half-time, but a huge effort by Tumeke just after half time put them up to 2-4 with five minutes to go.

A tense defensive period then commenced with Tumeke coming out on top. It’s the fourth year in a row the trophy has come back to London and the second year in a row for Tumeke, demonstrating the highly competitive nature of Tag Rugby in London.

 

Later this year she will travel to Australia to represent Great Britain Mixed Open at the 2015 World Cup and we would like to wish her the best of luck.
