Tiger Bay Brawlers are excited to announce they are taking part in this year’s East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX) – and they’re the only UK roller derby league representing. This will be the hardest challenge yet for the Cardiff team who only made their mark on the international derby scene last year when they took part in 2013: A Skate Odyssey in Gent.
