Dubai Rugby Sevens

In the UAE their weekend is Friday-Saturday, and every Friday morning starts with rugby training for the Dehli boys. Both Daniel and Malthe plays for the Hurricanes Team.
We came along to this weeks training, which they do at the huge Sevens stadium, 15 minutes from where they live. There is also an Arsenal soccer school and cricket practice, plus different year groups playing rugby on each pitch; so the place was buzzing with tons of kids and parents. Here's Malthe playing:

The supporters:

Lucky there is also a pool, for siblings, and a Costas Coffee (and a bar upstairs apparently!) for the parents! We all survived the hot Friday morning just fine!


Lucas is now looking forward to joining a rugby team in Abu Dhabi, not only so he can meet Malthe in upcoming games but also because they do full contact, not just touch as here.
