Having just missed out on the West Asia title to Dubai Exiles the Premiership title looked to be there for the taking with 3 matches left to play, one of which was against Exiles. Following a win away at Al Ain to keep hopes alive our boys traveled to Exiles for a tricky away fixture that could decide the fate of the title.

Sadly Exiles we the stronger on the day and secured a 19-9 victory which meant that even a win against Canes on the final day of the season, which we won 62-12, wasn’t enough to bring the title to Zayed Sports City. Our guys therefore finished second in both the West Asia Championship and the UAE Premiership having lifted the Gulf Mens 7s title at the Dubai 7s in December.
