Men’s First Team
The Doha 1st XV is a team made up of players 18 years and over who are interested in playing competitive rugby in the Middle East. The standard of rugby is always increasing and is now at a very competitive level throughout the region. Doha won the title in 2011-12, our first top senior title since inception in 1974.
The team is made up of men who are primarily out in Doha to work but love their rugby and still enjoy playing at a competitive level. We train 2 nights a week and games are held most Fridays during the winter months. The team forms a great bond of friendships and is a fantastic place for new rugby mad arrivals to come and make an instant bunch of new friends.
The 1st XV plays in the top competitions of the West Asian league against teams from the UAE, Bahrain, Muscat and Kuwait and for the last few seasons has also been one of the leading teams in the region. Coached by Kiwi Aaron Palmer and lead by Liam Frost they always welcome new players down who are hungry to succeed.
In addition to the Gulf Premiership and Top 6 competitions the squad also enters a team in the annual Dubai 7s which is a cracking event and a must to be involved in at least once. We also undertake both a competitive preseason tour and a social end of season tour.
Monday and Wednesday 7.00pm-8.30pm
