Yalla Rugby is an easy to use site for looking up the latest league table standings. It’s a great tool for finding information on rugby clubs in the Emirates along with information on general Arabian rugby news and updates in the region. Great for match day photos too.

ladies rugby in Dubai

Moved to the UAE in 2015, and I’d never played rugby, but was looking for a new sport and rugby was a great vehicle to develop new skills, as well as meet new people! Yalla Rugby has been a great advocate for women’s rugby and it’s an awesome place to find all the rugby news and updates in the UAE, as well as buy rugby equipment.
