Welcome Message A’Salamu Alaykum and welcome to the Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens 2013. For those attending the tournament for the first time, it gives me pleasure to extend a warm welcome and thank you for joining us. For those who have attended the event before, welcome back for what promises to be another blistering weekend of rugby! The Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens is a unique tournament in that it hosts three distinct tournaments simultaneously at one venue. The tournament therefore has ‘something for everyone’ and it is that unusual blend that makes this tournament so very special. This is the 44th Dubai Rugby Sevens Tournament, the 14th year that Dubai has hosted the Sevens World Series and the second year for the Women’s Sevens World Series. The tournament has historically enjoyed strong support from the local community and the tournament sponsors allowing the event to grow and mature over the years into the world class event and festival of rugby that it is today. This year, as usual, we see the HSBC Sevens World Series host 16 male teams and the IRB Women’s Sevens World Series host 12 women’s teams. The Invitation Tournament increases to 213 teams, the most ever in the history of the tournament. 2013 sees the introduction of a new tournament section, UAE National Schools, which will focus on local schools and players. Emirates Airline, a keen supporter of rugby locally, internationally and of Sevens, has been tournament sponsor since 1987. With the support of the other tournament sponsors the focus has been to develop the tournament to the spectacle it is today – there’s an amazing weekend of rugby fun ahead! Thank you for your support and participation in our tournament. Enjoy the rugby, the activities surrounding it and I hope you get the chance to savour some Dubai hospitality too.

Dubai Exiles RFC - Chairman›s Welcome Players, Coaches and Supporters Welcome to the 2013 Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens. Once again we are set to enjoy a huge festival of rugby across 3 days, bringing together players from many different nations around the world. As the proud Chairman of Dubai Exiles RFC - the club that began this event over 40 years ago - I often wonder if the man who was in my role at the club all that time ago knew what his efforts would one day turn into. I have been to the Hong Kong 7s, and the London 7s at Twickenham, and I still think our unique recipe of combining both amateur 7s, played on pitches alongside where the phenomenal athletes that are the international 7s players play, allied to some rather nice November weather (usually!) is simply unbeatable. I would like to thank all of the amazing work done by Emirates Airline in organizing this tournament, and so too the hundreds of volunteers who all make this such a successful spectacle. As we enjoy ourselves this weekend, I also think it is important to reflect on what makes the game of rugby so great: the respect, the discipline, and the teamwork it engenders are all life lessons that we can take away and apply elsewhere to good effect. Perhaps less obvious in a full contact sport is the concept of compassion and caring for those less fortunate than ourselves. However, rugby has a long history of supporting charitable causes, as you will witness this weekend, through some of the star studded ’charity teams’ taking part in this tournament, and raising funds for their chosen causes. I don’t need to say ’have fun’, because, after being at nine consecutive Dubai 7s, I know you will! So instead I ask you to ’do the right thing’, and keep this wonderful event - and all the good things it represents - alive for at least another 40 years. Good luck - and see you next year. Mike Wolff Chairman Dubai Exiles RFC

Tournament Information Welcome to the Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens Invitation Tournament 2013. This booklet’s aim is to provide teams with essential tournament information to help make the experience as enjoyable, memorable and stress-free as possible. Entrance/Accreditation Passes Accreditation Passes for players and personnel will only be issued when the signed Squad Registration Sheet is submitted at the Registration Tent. Players must wear their Accreditation Pass at all times except whilst playing when the pass should be lodged with their Team Manager. The Accreditation Pass allows a player or member of personnel access to the areas they need to enter in order to take part in the Invitation Tournament. Without an Invitation Tournament Accreditation Pass, access will be denied. Accreditation Process • Team Managers should have submitted all player accreditation information online by midnight on Saturday 23rd November. • Teams needing to change players from Sunday 24th November and before their first match of the tournament must do so on site in person at the Registration Tent. Proof of eligibility will need to be provided for any new player and all player changes must be made by the Team Manager. Teams changing players will be issued a revised Squad Registration Sheet when the player changes take place. Registration The Registration Tent is located next to Pitch 5 outside the Players Club. • • • • •
