Doha: Defending champions Qatar Camels beat Doha Vets while Doha Maroon – Doha RFC’s men’s first team – won convincingly against Al Khor, and Doha Gold – Doha RFC’s men’s second team – defeated Blue Phoenix in the Qatar Rugby Federation’s (QRF) newly-reformatted domestic XV’s competition.
“It was great to see all six teams in action. Events likes these really help to bring the different players together and also cement a spirit of collaboration between the clubs and federation,” said Director of Rugby, DRFC, Brook Tremayne.
Besides, the DRFC ladies played a sevens exhibition match, with their U17 girls team played a sevens exhibition match against QRF.
“This is an unusual year for us. Due to the current political situation, options for all our teams to travel are extremely limited. QRF’s domestic league is providing the clubs with the opportunity to continue playing competitively,” he added.
