Event description

Description

This will be the only GB trial before the World Cup 2021 Train-On Squads are selected in mid April.

This trial is designed for players who were not part of the 2018 World Cup or 2019 B&I Cup Great Britain Squads or the 2019 National Development Squad.

The day after Spring Tournament 2020 and being hosted at the same grounds, this is the final opportunity for players to impress the GB coaches before selection.

Representing Great Britain is a huge honour and as proven, one that is capable of winning World Cup medals and the British & Irish Cup. With such honour and reward, of course comes a huge amount of commitment, dedication and desire on the part of every player and the coaching teams.


PLAYER ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible to play for Great Britain you need to meet the following criteria by the time of the World Cup in 2021:

• Be British born or have residency of three consecutive years or more in Great Britain

• OR hold a British passport

• Be a fully registered Try Tag Rugby player (or equivalent registered player with another ITF member such as the Irish Tag Rugby Association) who has participated in at least one full league season during 2019 & 2020

• Not played for another full ITF member nation within the last one year

• Be available to travel to Ireland in 2021

• Great Britain representatives are ambassadors. Hence you must be an outstanding member of the Tag community who will uphold the ethos of Try Tag Rugby and represent Great Britain in a manner befitting to the UK Tag community. Any player who has received a suspension from Try Tag Rugby for any on field or off field incident since the beginning of 2018 is not eligible to play for Great Britain.

• Players are expected to meet the minimum training requirements as outlined by squad coaches once selection has been made.


GB DIVISIONS

Age brackets have been adapted with a view to building depth in squads over the next 2 years and to enable players to play with each other over the coming years in preparation for 2021. e.g. Women's Seniors in 2021 will become 30+. For 2020, this will be 29+ so that players by 2021 are of the correct age and will have played together for 2 years. For all categories, players can turn of age at any time that year.

  • - Mixed Open
  • - Men’s Open
  • - Women's Open
  • - Mixed Seniors (Men 32+, Women 29+)
  • - Men’s Seniors (29+)
  • - Women's Seniors (29+)
