Welcome to Newforge Taggers Tag RFC
The Newforge Taggers Tag Rugby Football Club was established in September 2006. It is a Tag Ruby Club for those with learning disabilities.
The club was formed with the full support of the IRFU (Ulster Branch) who are still closely involved with the development of the club. The ‘Taggers’ are the Junior section of the Police Service of Northern Ireland RFC and take the name Newforge from the home of Police Sport in Northern Ireland, Newforge Country Club in Belfast which is where the ‘Taggers’ are based.
The purpose of this website is to provide information about the Newforge Taggers and to allow club members and others that might be interested to learn of the history of our club and to find out the latest information about the club.
“Come on you wee Taggers!”
