The selection process for Great Britain Tag Rugby is open to all Try Tag Rugby players across the country, as such, we are hosting a preliminary training session based in Leeds for players in the Northern Powerhouse to ensure you are best placed and well versed prior to attending the London Trials. 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. Key dates for your diary: 11th May London Origin - This is a high level tournament, we are expecting to see our high level players register for selection.  Coaches & Scouts will be watching. Those trialling from the North of England are invited to register for North London. 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. The current proposal is that players attending this preliminary training session will create teams to compete in the Top Tier, gaining a genuine experience at the top of the game and to showcase your skills to the GB Coaches. 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 September British & 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. 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 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 and please note, this is not a formal trials event, this is an opportunity to be assessed prior to London travel and to ensure the GB Coaches have detailed player information prior to arrival.

A National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and now race director of the Ultra Tour Monte Rosa her passion for exploring is taking her far beyond competition to high, wild places often in Nepal.   “Endurance has always been a way of life for me, not only a sport, and my enduring passion is for the mountains and wilderness. I run simply for the love of it – with heart and soul, as well as the head and legs. If through my running I can reach out to people, to inspire them in some small way, then it gives what I do a deeper meaning. I hope to try to encourage people to realise the value of challenging ourselves both physically and mentally, the wonder of the world we live in, the richness of our environment and our responsibility to share it. This is my dream.” Lizzy studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University and has a PhD in physical oceanography in 2005 from Southampton University.   www.lizzyhawker.com www.ultratourmonterosa.com   Ian Corless: Ian has been working as a professional photographer since graduating from college in the late 80’s. Originally specialised in studio and commercial photography and he now specialises in trail, ultra, mountain and Skyrunning photography. In my 20’s he started cycling and improved step-by-step… nowhere near professional level but he was a decent domestic rider working up to 1st Cat and tested himself at many elite races. He has done multiple 70.3 races and Ironman events for fun. In 2005, he represented GB at the Duathlon Worlds in Australia. He has a marathon PB of 2:53. He describes himself as ‘an average at sport but love it!’ Wanting a new challenge he took up ultra running and has never looked back. He now combines all his experience from multiple disciplines and bring them together. He writes, blogs, photographs, provides race reports, travel and in 2012 he set up Talk Ultra as a primary vehicle for all that he does. Talk Ultra is an ultra running podcast for runners and enthusiasts. www.iancorless.org
