Dubai Exiles vs Gibraltar Rugby

Gibraltar kicked off their Dubai tour by playing Premiership Champions – Dubai Exiles at local school Nord Anglia. The match finished 33-19 to a strong Exiles side played on the school’s newly installed artificial grass rugby pitch, which was recently opened by ex England and British & Irish Lions legend Roger Uttley. The elite graded grass pitch was opened last month as Roger officially opened the pitch to a crowd of pupils, staff and parents. Exiles player and Head of PE at NAS – David Gairn, helped organise the fixture which was streamed live on Facebook thanks to Exiles media guru Marc Jonathon.
