Muscat Rugby Club

About Us

Muscat Rugby Football Club (MRFC) plays in the Gulf Conference & Gulf Premiership under the auspices of the Arabian RFU West Asia. We currently run a senior and vets squad as well as a junior section for all ages up to 16.

You can find us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to see the latest news and events with the club.

Muscat Rugby Club History

Following the accession of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said in 1970 a large number of expatriates arrived in Oman to work on various Government projects. Three of these, Hamish Donald, Brian Fawcett and Tony Jenkins contacted a number of individuals they thought may be interested in their beloved rugby and on July 26th 1971 The Muscat Rugby Football Club was founded.

The constitution drawn up by the six man committee was adopted on August 9th 1971 and His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said accepted to be Patron of the Club. The first site was chosen for the club in Wattayah and four telegraph poles with metal pipes served as goal posts. The original gold and blue strip was replaced in 1977 when permission was given to play in Omans national colours of red, green and white.

Five matches were played in the 1971-72 season and the need for a clubhouse was recognised. With much generous assistance, work began at the end of 1972 and continued on and off for fifteen months. The first International Sevens tournament held on March 1st/2nd 1973 was made particularly memorable as H.M. Sultan Qaboos bin Said arrived to watch the final with Muscat ‘A’ losing to Dubai ‘ A’ 6-22. The new clubhouse was opened at 1974 Sevens with Abu Dhabi ‘A’ defeating Muscat ‘A’ 10-0.

In 1985 the Club was asked to move from Wattayah and found its new home at Al Khuwair, the first clubhouse at the site consisted of portacabins donated by a local building contractor and these served the members well over the following nine years before they were destroyed by fire in February 1995. The playing field of sand and gravel was carved out of a major sand dune, not a surface you would wish to be tackled hard on.

Perhaps the highlight of the clubs achievements has been the three Dubai Sevens crowns, 1981, 1982 and 1991. On the occasion of the 1981 and 1982 victories, the Club represented the AGRFU in the Hong Kong Sevens, coming up against opposition of the calibre of the Barbarians.

In 1996 the club celebrated its 25th Anniversary, on the occasion an International 10’s tournament was held with teams from Wales – Swansea RFC, New Zealand – Northcote RFC and The Quality Street Gang from England. QSG proved to be to strong for a young Swansea team in the final.

On 16 November 1997 we finally moved into our new clubhouse. This new facility could not have been built, without the help of many local contractors who gave generously of their time and materials. With the opening of this new facility Muscat RFC entered a new era.

Continuing in this tradition, in 2006 the Club has started the long awaited conversion of the sand field to a grass pitch. The first match on the green turf  was against Abu Dhabi on 10th Nov 2006.

Despite the club closure in late 2007, the club continued to play rugby, Muscat were runner’s up in the last two years in the Gulf Plate competition, both times losing out to Dubai dragons in the final. In addition the 2nd team were narrowly defeated in the Shield Final at the Dubai 7’s 2008.

Muscat returned to winning ways in the 2011-2012 season by winning the Gulf Conference Cup after defeating Al Ain on their home turf. MRFC managed to repeat this feat in the 2016-17 season by once again winning the Gulf Conference Cup.
