Last Friday saw the the mighty Exiles Adult Touch squad compete in the 3rd Middle East Touch Championships in Dubai.

It had been an exciting week for the Dubai Exiles Touch squad. With not only the Middle East Touch Championships on Friday 21st, but the Exiles also hosted two clinics with one of the games greats, Mr Peter Walters.
