In 2020 the TASRC will be held over the weekend of 18 & 19 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 carnival relies on the local school communities of TAS, New England Girls’ School (NEGS) and Presbyterian Ladies’ College (PLC) in Armidale, working with the broader TAS community. The all-inclusive TASRC package for team members is great value and includes: accommodation and meals for the weekend, comprehensive insurance, a team photograph and a carnival cap.
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, Mrs Gaye Piper on 0410 924 191 or [email protected]

“One of the most special things about rugby, and a foundation for our game long before it became professional, was the social aspect of the game and meeting people that you will be friends with for the rest of your life.” – Wallaby, Paddy Ryan
