Merchiston Primary School gears up for another SPUR Merchiston Tag Rugby® Festival

Merchiston Primary School is hosting their 7th Annual SPUR Merchiston Tag Rugby® Festival on 30 May 2015. This event has grown every year and the organisers are expecting a record number 60 teams on the day. Tag Rugby® is a non-contact form of the game and a tackle is made by removing a tag when your opponent has the ball. The game is fast and fun. Girls and boys can play in the same team as there is no tackling, scrums, line outs or kicking. The game improves hand-eye co-ordination, which is beneficial for all sports development and other rugby related skills.
