SSC win inaugural Hospital Tag Rugby Blitz

The Sports Surgery Clinic, Santry won the inaugural Hospital Tag Rugby Blitz, in aid of Barretstown, narrowly beating a Beaumont Hospital/RCSI combination team in a thrilling final on Saturday last, 7th September.

Given PEI's own success in TAG Rugby over the last couple of years, it was inevitable that TAG Rugby would feature somewhere in the PEI 50 plans. The event was the first of its kind bringing hospitals from all over together for a day long blitz.

The day was a great success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all those in attendence. It is hoped that the event will become a annual fixture.
