Day 4 of the Games saw young people from across the County travel to Diss Rugby Club to take part in the 2015 Norfolk School Games Tag Rugby Finals. The event included two separate competitions; an open Yr 5-6 competition for schools of any sized and a Yr 4-6 small schools competition for schools who have less than 125 pupils.
During the morning session, teams were split into two pools within each competition with teams playing against each other in a round robin format. Once all of the matches were completed and the results were added together, the teams that finished in 1st and 2nd place in each pool were invited to take part in the afternoons Cup Competition, with the teams that finished 3rd and 4th in each group going into the Plate competition.
