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