Great Britain Trial 2021
The Great Britain Tag Rugby teams are set for an exciting year after the postponement of the British & Irish Cup in 2020.

It's set to be a busy year ahead with two British & Irish Cup Tournaments set to be played in 2021 (8th May & 5-8th August), along with the Confederations Cup (5th-8th August) and a Tri-Nations in South Africa (December).

This year registration is open to all interested players but Great Britain coaches and selectors will then shortlist players and invite a limited number to trial due to covid-19 restrictions. If you do not think the coaches will have seen you play we would recommend that you ask an appropriate representative in your region to speak to the coaches on your behalf. We ask that you pick a time for trialling and if successful we'll aim to inform players one week prior to the trial date.

This trial is designed for players who were not part of the EPS squad in 2019/2020. If you are unsure if you need to trial please contact willshepherd@trytagrugby.com.

PLAYER ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible to play for Great Britain you need to meet the following criteria:
• 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

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.
