ABU DHABI 5 October 2017: UAE Rugby is to be represented by an all-Emirati men’s 7’s-side at this coming weekend’s Arab 7’s tournament.

Now in its third year, the tournament will be played in Jordan over the weekend of Friday October 6th, and Saturday October 7th, said Wam.

“Our board has selected a side of strong, experienced Emirati rugby players, with only one new player making his 7’s debut,” said UAE Rugby Federation Board Member, Mohamed Shaker.

“We are looking forward to very competitive games, as our pool consists of very capable teams which we will not underestimate. We are confident our players will put forward a very strong challenge and produce the winning results.”

UAE kick-off their campaign on Friday against Iraq at 10:30, followed by Jordan at 14:00, finishing day one’s pool games against Libya at 18:30 (all times local).
