Dubai Rugby Sevens: BSAK win Gulf Under 19 title to gain revenge over Dubai College
Beating their rivals 20-5 in the final, BSAK atoned for the defeat to their rivals in their own sevens tournament.
British School Al Khubairat reclaimed the Gulf Under 19 title by beating a Dubai College side who had thrashed them nine tries to nil last month.
In BSAK’s own sevens festival, which acts as a preparatory tournament for the Dubai Rugby Sevens, the two same teams reached the final, only for DC to trounce their hosts.
The Abu Dhabi school exacted revenge on the biggest stage possible, though, as they won 20-5 against their Dubai rivals on Pitch 1.

“It is amazing, I’ve never felt anything like this,” Sam Relton, the BSAK captain, said.
“To go on that pitch with a bunch of, not teammates but brothers, giving it our all, it was just an amazing experience.
“The BSAK tournament was our low point. From then on we just built on it. We said it was our rock bottom, our foundation to build on, and it brought us all closer together because we knew what it felt like to be down and defeated.”
