The inaugural Get into Rugby  National Tag Festival was launched in Town Ground Rugby Stadium in Honiara in the Solomon Islands.

It had more than 200 girls and boys converge to learn to promote the values of  Rugby and ensure that they play in a safe and progresssive environment.

The aim of the program is to encourage players of all ages to TRY, PLAY and STAY in Rugby.

Solomon Islands Rugby Union Federation Vice President International- Adrian Tuhanuku said that the program had great importance in creating pathways for young girls and boys in the Solomon Islands.

The participants came from the Eastern and Western parts of the Guadalcanal and converged at the Town Ground Rugby field in Honiara.

The interest so has been unprecedented given the intention to hold the festivals every six months.

SIRUF Chief Executive Officer Alivereti Mocelutu adds that  it was an exciting time for the growth of Rugby in the Solomon Islands also identifying potential players through age groups.

SIRUF is currently at work with other associations in hosting the festival within their respective provinces in 2020.
