Dave Ford, captain of Doha Maroon – Doha RFC’s men’s first team – also commented, saying:

This the biggest game of the season so far for us, and something we’ve been training for all year. We know their strengths and we know their weaknesses, and we have a game plan that will ensure we take home the win and top the league. Plus, a few of them played for us last year so we know what to expect. With three games taking place at DRFC on Friday, it will be a big day for Qatar rugby.

The QRF’s National Club Rugby Championship is set to conclude in February 2018. The matches are being played in three different venues across the country, including Al Khor, DRFC, and Aspire Zone’s Warm-Up Track.

Rugby Sevens Legend Waisale Serevi Impressed with Aspire Academy

Renowned international Fijian Rugby Sevens legend, Waisale Tikoisolomoni Serevi, toured Aspire Academy on Wednesday 6th December 2017 during a visit to Doha. During the exclusive tour, the two-time Rugby World Cup Sevens champion was given a tour of Aspire Academy’s state-of-the-art facilities and received an in-depth briefing on its services and programmes.

Speaking on the side-lines of his visit, Serevi said:

I am really amazed by what l have seen here. I have been playing rugby for 21 years and have been all over the world, but I have never seen an Academy like this in my life. It is really a privilege.

After wishing them luck in their academic and sporting careers, Serevi shared words of wisdom with Aspire Academy’s student-athletes, advising them to have faith in their ability, believe in themselves and work hard, adding:

Always set out to be better than the day before, let this be your attitude especially in your training and one day you will reach your goal and be the best in your sport.
