In recent years, the Exiles u19 Girls side has competed strongly that the Emirates Dubai Sevens, the current Cup winners and winning the competition on 5 out of the last 6 occasions.
Dubai Exiles Rugby Club is now looking to reform a women’s rugby senior team at the club, in the 2019/20 season we successfully reintroduced an u19 boys side who went on to win the HSBC Mini & Youth Rugby Tournament on their first outing. defeating the Dubai Hurricanes twice on their way to the silverware.
This success was accomplished by the group being coached by a qualified, experienced and knowledgeable coaching team, something that we now have in place for the 2020/21 women’s Gulf Rugby side.
