MRFC travel to Doha on Friday morning to take on Doha 2s in Qatar. The season starts following a raft of changes to the structure of rugby in the Gulf. Muscat find themselves competing in the Gulf Conference alongside Doha 2s, Kuwait, Saudi Select and Bahrain Select. With Muscat having played 16 league games last season, the new structure gives more time off for the lads and pits the team against a more level playing field. Although the first game maybe on Friday, pre-season started for Muscat at the beginning of June, with Horizon Fitness Oman supporting the lads by offering free Horizon Fitness The Engine Room to get in shape.
