In Full Swing

AESGC’s Rugby Club activities move fullspeed ahead

After a well-deserved winter break, the Rugby Club is back in action from the future Under 6 stars all the way up to our veterans.

The New Year kicked off with our Community team playing at home against Jebel Ali Dragons on 12 January, followed by our Conference team starting their campaign on the 19 January with a superb win against the Dubai Sharks.

The stars of the month, though, were our Women’s team who competed in the next round of the Women’s Gulf Cross-Border tournament at Dubai Sport City. The frst team won the B division with ease, while only allowing one try to be scored against them the entire tournament.

The second team, led by Marisse De Klerk, had a fantastic tournament, achieving their goals of playing a tighter defensive game and scoring at least one try in each match.

Our youth teams have also been very busy with some amazing league results across the different age groups. At the annual HSBC Dubai Exiles/Hurricanes youth tournament we were represented by all our youth teams, and they played extremely well. Although we had mixed results, it was thoroughly enjoyed and was an actionpacked weekend.

There are still a number of home matches left in the season with the next on 16 February when the Men’s second team will go against the Beaver Nomads. We encourage our members and community to come down and support our teams when we have home games.
