Spur Steak Ranches is proud to be the title sponsorship of the Spur Merchiston Tag Rugby Festival in Pietermaritzburg. This year the Spur Merchiston Tag Rugby Festival will take place on 26 May 2018 at Merchiston Prep School. 500 boys and girls from schools around Pietermaritzburg will take part in this fun form of non-contact rugby whereby player skill and fitness is tested. The SA Rugby Legends will be conducting a coaching session for all the boys after the Tag rugby games. Each of the 500 boys will receive a Spur Burger and drink along with a Spur branded t-shirt.
The beauty about Tag Rugby is that it is a fun-filled form of non-contact rugby whereby players must “tag” a belt around an opponent’s waist in order to make a tackle. This type of rugby is what the youngsters need for skills development, good attacking running lines, and excellent peripheral vision required in rugby.
