Wolfies Tail TagSue Campbell, Chief Executive for the British Sports Trust and Advisor to the Government on Sport came to Wilderspool on Friday 13th October, to launch the Wolves new game Wolfie's Tail Tag."The game of Tail Tag is very clever as with Wolfie's Work Out Book, combining sport and education is terrific. It is a great motivator for children and by creating a game linked with education and a sport like Rugby League is the start of something big. It is the way forward in development."Wolfie's Tail Tag is a modified game of Rugby League; it has been developed for children. It has been tailored to take the physical contact aspect of league out of the game; this to prevent injury. Tail Tag has all the fun and excitement of traditional Rugby League but without the fierce physical contact of the kind you see each week in Super League.The Wolves have had special tags manufactured for the game, labelled with Wolfie, thanked to the new partnership recently formed with regional energy supplier Manweb. The new game will become part of the already successful Primary Link and Try Hard schemes run by the Wolves. The game has been developed to encourage children and adults to become involved with the game of Rugby League.Tackling is effected by the removal of a 'tag', which is positioned at the hip, on a Velcro belt. The player who effected the tackle must then hold the belt tag in the air before placing it on the ground. The ' tackled ' player must then return to the place where the belt was removed and put the removed tag back on the belt before proceeding to play the ball.
