Hold onto your hat, what a night it was at The Sevens last night. As we left the city lights behind and headed to The Sevens on arrival it was bright, clear and all set for a fabulous night of touch. Fast forward 45 minutes it was dark, grey and a stand storm was ripping through The Sevens just as our Mixed round was getting underway.
Despite the challenging conditions there was still some great action on the field. In Pool A title holders BroTown Whai were made to work for their 6-4 win over BMW while old rivals and very good friends Warriors Clan edged passed The Untouchables 6-3, with 1 round of fixtures we will have 3 teams in the running to secure the 2 spots in the cup half of the draw. Over in Pool B Warriors Tribe edged past AGMC 8-5 while Mustag Sallies struggled to get to grip with the conditions going down 16-3 to Everytime We touch, again like in Pool A its all to play for in the next round to get the all-important cup slots.
The Ladies division saw current holders BroTown Kahu remain unbeaten, however FFP White made them sweat in the sand for a 6-4 victory meanwhile FFP Blue revenged their defeat from the previous week with a 8-3 victory over the UntouchaBelles.
Where to start with the Men’s, no better place than Pool A, Title holders BroTown were held last week to a 5-5 draw last week with UntouchaBulls so were rearing to go against old foes FFP Blue, and end to end game followed and there was nothing separating the teams with another 5-5 score being posted. Meanwhile the UntouchaBulls adapted to the conditions better then the Wolves and walked away with the spoils 16-2 to top pool A. This leaves Pool A in a wide open all 4 teams can still make the cup final, it could go down to the wire next time so expect plenty of action! Pool B saw Exiles Men improve on last week and in a game that could have gone either way were edged out by the Warriors Masters 5-7 meanwhile the Falcons continued their 100% form with a 9-3 win over FFP.
A great night of touch despite the weather and all set for a mouthwatering final qualifying round of fixtures. There are no games next week due to Eid, but we expect the training grounds (or watering holes) of Dubai to be full over the next couple of weeks as teams prepare their plans for the final round of games before we split into the Cup & Plate competitions for the Mixed & Ladies
