Abu Dhabi Harlequins 2nds and Dubai Hurricanes 2nds maintained their perfect records to remain joint top of the UAE Conference after four games on Friday night.

Both teams enjoyed comprehensive victories to remain five points clear of Sharjah Wanderers in third-place – the only other team in the division who are also yet to taste defeat this season.

Quins beat Dubai Exiles 2nds 29-6 at Zayed Sports City as Canes triumphed across Abu Dhabi at Al Ghazal, claiming a thrilling 39-19 win against the winless Abu Dhabi Saracens 2nds.

Sharjah, who have played a game less than the leading two, were rampant in their 49-3 routing of Arabian Knights, who are also winless after their three games.

In the night’s other two games, Jebel Ali Dragons 2nds got their first win of the season in fine style as they hammered Al Ain Amblers 2nds 57-10 at the Jebel Ali Centre of Excellence.

Dubai Wasps continued their good progress under new head coach Mike Pugsley, the Welshman steering his side to a tense 23-17 win against Heartbeat Tigers to lift them into fifth place.

In the Community League, meanwhile, Jebel Ali Dragons 3rds retained their grip on top spot as they beat Al Ain Amblers 3rds 41-7, which takes them onto 152 points from three games.

They hold a five-point advantage after three matches over the second-placed Arabian Knights 2nds.

A little history was made when Dubai Hurricanes 3rds fielded a  team for the first time and they would have been delighted with the 43-7 win against the UAE Shaheen, who are still searching for their first win in their first foray into competitive domestic rugby.

The Beaver Nomads are two from two as another unbeaten team this season and they ran in an impressive nine tries in a 47-17 victory over Dubai Sharks 3rds.
