Double Triumph for the U11 Rugby boys
The Year 6 A rugby team have recently played in two big tournaments. The first of which was the inaugural JESS Ranches 7s and the second was the 15th edition of the annual Dubai College 7s.
An amazing team effort saw the boys go undefeated during both events against the top 12 schools in Dubai resulting in tournament wins on both occasions.
This was the 4th time in 6 years that DESS have been crowned DC 7s Champions. An incredible achievement.
At the JESS event, under the floodlights, DESS played some wonderful attacking rugby and ended up defeating a strong Foremarke team in the final.
The DC final was against a well drilled King’s Al Barsha team who had played well throughout the morning.
A special mention must go to Marnus Wessels (6O) who played his last rugby match for DESS before he moves back to South Africa in the new year.
Very well done to all the boys and I look forward to the 10 a-side league starting in January.
