Yazoo Tag Rugby Programme

Last week, Allesley Primary School hosted the Yazoo 1,000,000th Tag Celebration Day, and it’s worth highlighting the value of this programme to our great game.

Over the last two years the RFU has been running a far-reaching community tag rugby programme across the whole of England in conjunction with YAZOO, to encourage children to participate in sport and pursue a safer and healthier lifestyle.

England and Sale wing Mark Cueto has been involved with the project and is the RFU YAZOO Tag Rugby Ambassador – he’s been coaching the kids and helping to raise money for schools to support the project.

There has been significant discussion on this site about the failure of rugby’s grass roots and that this has affected the national team, so schemes like this certainly warrant our praise.
