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.

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.

Selection for the World Cup GB Team will be developed over the coming two years and is not restricted to the teams being selected for the B&I Cup 2019. It is for this reason that Great Britain & Ireland have decreased the age categories for the 2019 & 2020 B&I Cups so we can genuinely grow a significant pool of players in each category, creating depth and breadth across the development squads for 2021.

Be part of the Great Britain Tag Rugby 2021 Vision. Try Tag Rugby is inviting all players with a vision of being part of the 2021 World Cup the opportunity to join us at Great Britain Trials. The objective of the Trials is two-fold: Be recognised, make sure the coaches are aware of your long-term vision, put yourself on the map and work with the GB Management Team to be best placed for consideration in 2021. The British & Irish Cup squads will be chosen from players who attend one of the trials. The British & Irish Cup will take place on Saturday 7th September 2019. Note, this selection does not exclude any player from the broader GB 2021 Player Development Pool. We are excited to share the vision of Great Britain Tag Rugby. Representing Great Britain is a huge honour and as we have proven, one that is capable of winning World Cup medals.  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. The vision is very clear.  Great Britain Tag Rugby is focusing on building and fielding the most competitive squads in time for the 2021 Tag World Cup in Ireland. Along the way, we will be hosting and no doubt visiting Ireland to compete in the 2019 and 2020 British & Irish Cups. Selection for the World Cup GB Team will be developed over the coming two years and is not restricted to the teams being selected for the B&I Cup 2019. It is for this reason that Great Britain & Ireland have decreased the age categories for the 2019 & 2020 B&I Cups so we can genuinely grow a significant pool of players in each category creating depth and breadth across the development squads for 2021. Try Tag Rugby will be appointing a Great Britain Coaching Team to build and deliver on this 2021 vision which will include their attendance at specific events as well as trials and visiting leagues across the country to ensure no talent is untapped. Key dates for your diary: 6th AprilSpring Tournament - If you were lucky enough to register in time, Coaches and Scouts will be watching 11th MayLondon Origin - This is  a high level tournament, we are expecting to see our high level players register for selection.  Coaches & Scouts will be watching 2nd JuneGB Trials 1 - This will be the first round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 8th JuneTagFest London - The biggest event Try Tag Rugby will ever have hosted, with unlimited capacity for team and individual entry.  Coaches & Scouts will expect to see you there. 23rd JuneGB Trials 2 - This will be the second round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 26th JuneB&I 2019 Squads to be announced 7th SeptemberBritish & Irish Cup 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 • 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. GB DIVISIONS Categories 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 enable players to play with each other over the coming years in preparation for 2021.  e.g. Womens Seniors in 2021 will remain as 27+.  For 2019, this will be 25+. 2020 will be 26+ and so on so that players by 2021 are of the correct age and will have played together for 2 years. - Mixed Open - Men’s Open - Women's Open - Mixed Seniors (Men 31+, Women 28+) - Men’s Seniors (28+) - Women's Seniors (25+) Register your attendance to Trials and get yourselves signed up to the relevant tournaments on the Try Tag Rugby Event Page - www.trytagrugby.eventbrite.com Any questions, please email [email protected] We look forward to sharing more information over the course of the year including location - which will be within London.

Screen Media and Theory Workshop: Uncertainty, Turbulence and Moving Image Archives 11-12th June 2019, University College London Convened by Dr Annie Ring (University College London) and Dr Lucy Bollington (University College London) This workshop will explore how experimental film and other screen media practices have engaged with concepts of uncertainty and turbulence through their use of found and mixed footage and other archival material from the mid twentieth century to the present day. Uncertainty and turbulence are two of the defining experiences of late modernity. Despite the technological changes of the digital revolution making increasingly vast amounts of knowledge available, new possibilities for data manipulation and anxieties about a post-truth era are combining to produce a historical moment more knowledgeable and yet more uncertain than ever before. Given this context, the dubious place of the archive as authoritative store of knowledge has seemingly reached its lowest point, and yet screen media practices have continued to turn to archives of different kinds in order to grapple with uncertainties and turbulence in their aesthetic forms. At this workshop, we will reflect on contemporary phenomena of uncertainty and turbulence from a range of formal and theoretical perspectives, conceptualising these terms in relation to issues such as postproduction, post-representation, the attention economy and shifting ideas about data, the crowd and the commons. In so doing, we will place particular emphasis on how screen media work produces novel pathways into thinking about and refashioning notions of uncertainty and turbulence, and ideas about the archive in the contemporary era. The talks by academics and artists and a theoretical discussion session with pre-circulated readings will address the use of moving image archives in new screen media, including postcinema, art film and web based narratives, as well as looking back to lost footage from resistant filmmaking projects and the use of the moving image in recent alt-right media practices.  The workshop will include presentations by academic speakers working in film and screen studies, German, Latin American studies, media archaeology, philosophy, critical and cultural theory. There will also be artist talks by Rose Butler and Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeldt and a keynote by Austrian artist, activist and theorist Manu Luksch. All participants will be invited to join in a theory workshop focussed on pre-circulated readings and so contribute to collective reflection on topics of uncertainty, turbulence, the archive and screen media practices. Research assistance by Laura Lux (King’s College London) Artist keynote by Manu Luksch Artists talks by Rose Butler and Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeldt Other confirmed speakers: Dr Daniela Agostinho (University of Copenhagen) Dr Erika Balsom (King’s College London) Prof Erica Carter (King’s College London) Dr Jenny Chamarette (Queen Mary University of London) Dr Rafael Dernbach (Futurium, Berlin) Ece Elbeyi (University of Copenhagen) Prof Lee Grieveson (University College London) Dr Rhiannon Harries (University of Nottingham) Dr Pepita Hesselberth (Leiden University) Dr Ekaterina Kalinina (Södertörn University) Dr Leila Mukhida (University of Cambridge) Dr Maria Poulaki (University of Surrey) Dr Vid Simoniti (University of Liverpool) Dr Kristin Veel (University of Copenhagen) The event is a collaboration between University College London School of European Languages, Cultures and Societies, the DAAD-funded Circulating Cinema Research Project, part of the German Screen Studies Network, the Uncertain Archives Research Collective and University College London Institute of Advanced Studies Turbulence Project. It is generously funded by University College London Global Engagement Funds, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), University College London Institute of Advanced Studies and Uncertain Archives. Registration: Registration is free of charge; please register by 1 June 2019 to secure a place and receive pre-circulated readings. Programme: The events on 11th June will run from noon, and include a theory workshop with pre-circulated readings and an evening keynote and screening by artist Manu Luksch. The events on 12th June, from 9am-5.45pm will include a series of talks by academics and artists and discussion. Full programme to follow. Numbers are limited for the daytime sessions on 11th and 12th June. Please register early to secure your place. Image: Schnittstelle/Interface (1995), Harun Farocki. Courtesy of Harun Farocki GbR.
