In 2018 the TASRC will be held over the weekend of 14 & 15 April. This is a wonderful opportunity for players aged 11 or 12, to experience a regional tour including five games, played over two days. Over the weekend, teams play five competitive games, pooled against teams of matching standard, from across Australia. Team members and supporters enjoy two days of rugby in the beautiful city of Armidale, located in the New England region of New South Wales. Armidale, Australia’s highest city is approximately five hours from both Brisbane and Sydney on the New England Highway.
The focus of the TASRC is on sportsmanship, and the highly coveted Zoo Team of the Carnival award is presented each year to the team displaying outstanding performance and sportsmanship on, and off, the field. In 2017 the TASRC hosted 45 different schools and clubs, with well over 1000 budding Wallabies and their management staff joining in the event.
Each year we look forward to welcoming the visiting teams, along with the many families and supporters that flock to Armidale over the carnival weekend.
All enquiries for this event should be directed to the TASRC Administrator on 0410 924 191 or [email protected]
