Until now, the Dubai Shaheen Rugby team, an all Arab rugby club, had only been included in sevens and 10s rugby. But in 2015/16, the Airport Shaheen RFC fielded a 15 XV rugby team in the newly created third-tier UAE Division 2 league.
For those local players who are new to the sport of rugby, or wanting to learn about playing rugby in the United Arab Emirates and to get some good experience of the game, the Dubai Shaheen Rugby Club is the best place to start.
The Shaheen have been under the guidance of ex professional Samoan International – Apollo Perelini since 2013.
