Episode 17: The Rugby Sevens

Dubai's most high-profile social event, the Emirates Rugby Sevens, marked its 50th anniversary in grand fashion over the past weekend with a mixture of adrenaline-pumping sports action, performances from musical acts including Kylie Minogue and a celebration of the bonds between expats from all walks of life. On the opening day of the event, UAE Rugby Head Coach Apollo Perelini spoke to the show about what makes the Rugby Sevens so special and the role that rugby has in Dubai's history.
