Jebel Ali Dragons RFC were established in 1992 originally playing purely as a ‘social team’ and has over time developed into a club with three very competitive sides in the Gulf and Emirates leagues along with a growing mini and youth set up.This year our First XV contributed 8 players to the UAE National squad.

Arguably the most succesful club in the region. From very humble beginnings. We pride ourselves on attractive hard rugby with a friendly face. The appointment of current Director of Rugby Henry Paul has added the quality we strive for as the club moves on to bigger and better things.

The Club has a constitution and is a Member of the UAERA, and was previously a member of the AGRFU.


Our Mission

To provide an unparalleled rugby environment that breeds success on and off the pitch. to be a club that all levels and ages can feel comfortable and where some can excel. Fierce on the pitch and friendly off it and to uphold the values that Rugby has people all over the world.

2017 was a real stepping stone for the Dragons on their journey, rightly rated as the best team in Dubai we look to improve again next season
