This was our first Emirates Dubai 7’s Rugby and boy were we given an introduction like no other. Firstly, a big congratulations to the great organisation of this event. It was impressive. The sponsors , Emirates, DHL, Heineken, HSBC were amazing too. The party vibe was electric. It was such a fun way to spend the day surrounded by supporters from all over the world.
And I have to say, we had forgotten what it was like to support a team that was absolutely on fire. The Blitzbokke were brilliant and caused us Saffas to puff out our chest with pride. I think every supporter from around the world will agree with us that our team deserved to be crowned the champions of this tournament. No other team were quite as motivated or focussed. The boys did us proud.
It was also so amazing to have our son visiting from South Africa and for him to enjoy the hospitality of this amazing city and event. He was super impressed and says he hopes that Cape Town tournament can try and match this amazing event.
Day 1 was definitely the party day. The Dubai expats let their hair down and partied like rock stars. The festivities were contagious and you could not help but get caught up in the party spirit.
The Emirates Dubai Rugby 7’s is definitely one event of the year to put on your calendar.
Day 2 coming shortly!
