Round 3 of the Women’s 7’s League took our girls to Al Ain, where they competed in the B League, taking on Dubai Ospreys, Al Ain B, Abu Dhabi Bats and Sharjah. Nerves kicked in for the girls which equated to a slow start in the first game against Dubai Ospreys, resulting in a defeat.
Game play improved in Match 2 against Al Ain with the girls running good lines and passing better. Abu Dhabi Bats (Harlequins) brought with it some injuries, but it also brought the girls their first win of the day which was the highlight of the day. With spirits high going into the fourth and final game, the girls gave it their all and played a competitive game and gave overall B League winners a run for their money, but unfortunately lost with a score line of 15-10. MOMs went to Tracey and Roxy for their overall efforts and contributions!
The fun didn’t stop there though as Al Ain hosted a circus themed tournament and had lots more games for us to play including obstacle races and 3 legged races in our mime outfits! All eyes now turn to preparing for Dubai 7s in 3 weeks’ time.
