An enjoyable weekend at the GCC Youth Tournament in Muscat
During the weekend of the 10th and 11th March Muscat Pirates RFC hosted rugby clubs from around the GCC for its annual rugby tournament.
Over 300 children participated in this two-day event at The Sultan’s School sports field, the first one held since 2020, due to the pandemic.
This highly anticipated event was a welcome opportunity for the players to put into practice the skills they are learning during training, having trained a few years without having been able to play any competitive games.
A massive thank you to the travelling teams who made this tournament a success – Bahrain RFC, Dubai Falcons RFC and Abu Dhabi Harlequins.
