Dubai Exiles’ girls continued their dominance of domestic age-group rugby after they won the Under 19 Girls tournament at the HSBC Rugby Festival at The Sevens.

The team have won all but one of the age-group tournaments at the annual Emirates Dubai Sevens tournaments since girls rugby was first played, including in December when they beat Speranza 22 Academy in the Pitch 1 final.

On Sunday, each of their A and B sides picked up trophies at the HSBC festival, which is the region’s largest youth rugby event.

Their first team beat their neighbours Dubai Hurricanes 24-0 in the cup final after a 12 team event which also involved sides from Al Ain, Abu Dhabi and Kazakhstan. Their second string beat Tigers 17-12 in the plate final.
