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
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.
