Jordan is sending three club sides to compete at the prestigious Dubai Rugby 7s which get underway on Thursday.
Nomads, Citadel and the Saracens Rugby Clubs are all heading to the UAE to compete against some of best Middle East sides across different categories.
Jordan 7s Series champions Nomads are competing in the tough Gulf Men's Open, where they have been drawn in the same group as last year’s runners-up, but will be hoping to improve on their fifth place showing from 20 teams in 2015.
Cross-city rivals Citadel Rugby Club were runners-up to Nomads in the Jordan Rugby 7s and are also competing in the Gulf Men's Open category and are confident of springing a surprise or two this year.
The Saracens, who finished third in the Jordan series, will compete in the Gulf Veterans. They are made up predominantly of expatriate players who have contributed hugely to the rapid development of the game in Jordan and will be looking to make a name for themselves in Dubai.
Rugby is currently on a high in Jordan after becoming officially recognised by the Asian Rugby Federation earlier this month.
