Event description

Description

London Origin continues to be a highly contested tournament bringing our high level players from both North and South of the river to battle it out on the Tag field.

This year, as a stand alone tournament and without all the furore and distraction of the more social setting of previous years, the focus will be on welcoming the 'best in class' to compete together on a highly competitive stage.

Great Britain Head Coaches and Talent Scouts will be attending this event with a view to buiding breadth and depth across multiple divisions with a focus on the 2021 World Cup.

With North London winning in 2018, they take the annual series lead 5-4 with victories in 2015, 2013, 2012 and 2010. South London enjoying victories in 2017, 2016, 2014 and 2011 will have all to play for in 2019 with a view to settling the scores and bringing the series back to a tie.


FORMAT

Teams will play in the 8-a-side format using Try Tag Rugby's extended rules (international rules). Mixed Divisions require 4 males & 4 females on the pitch.

Eight divisions will take place;

- Mixed Open*
- Men’s Open*
- Women's Open*
- Mixed Seniors (Men 31+, Women 28+)*
- Men’s Seniors (28+)*
- Women's Seniors (25+)*
- Men's Overs (33+)
- Women's Overs (33+)

Each division will have three 40-minute games.

Note: Players will only be allowed to participate in one team throughout the day.

Note: Categories with * have been selected but are not limited to those we are considering for the World Cup 2021. Age brackets have been adapted with a view to building depth in squads over the next 2 years and to eanble players to play with each other over the coming years in preperation for 2021. e.g. Women's Seniors in 2021 will remain as 27+. For 2019 this will be 25+. 2020 will be 26+ and so on so that players come 2021 are of the correct age and will have played together for 2 years.

Note: Try Tag Rugby reserve the right to move players in to different divisions where required
