Bahrain Rugby Club quite simply put is historically the regions most successful rugby club bar none. Having dominated the early years of the regions competitions the club provided a majority of players to the Arabian Gulf’s teams prior to their disbandment. Now, after a few years struggling in the rugby wilderness, Bahrain RFC has committed firmly towards restoring themselves to the top of the tree having taken on professional coaching and medical support as well as recruiting players from across the globe.

Veterans Rugby Squad

Head Coaches: Jim Rowark

The ‘Golden Oldies’ is a squad made up of the club’s more senior players with the official qualification being that they are over the age of 35. A club within a club the G.O’s never fail to support anything and everything going on and can be seen entering events across the region as well as touring anually. Local Rugby consists of a sequence of freindly games with visiting navy sides as well as those from across the bridge in Saudi Arabia

Like the Senior Squads training is officially 7.30pm til 9.00pm on Monday and Wednesday Evenings however this is at a far more sedate pace and often joins with the Social Touch Rugby sessions to round off
