Despite a slow start in the tournament, the Palestines men put on a commendable show as they made their first debut on Asia stage and showcased a decent level of rugby.

Fiji and UAE currently have an MOU on rugby development between Fiji Rugby Union and UAE Rugby.

More exchanges not only between players but competent coaches from Fiji are expected to continue the relationship.

The late Westfield Babas mentor Epeli Lagiloa was the first Fijian coach to go to UAE under this arrangement.
