Template:Infobox rugby team

The United Arab Emirates national rugby union team represents the United Arab Emirates in rugby union. They compete in the annual Asian Five Nations. They were once part of the Arabian Gulf team which consisted of players from various Arab States of the Persian Gulf. In 2011 they were granted membership into the Asian Rugby Football Union and following a successful bid, were granted full membership with the IRB. They are the newest and 100th member to do so.

The United Arab Emirates rugby union caused consternation in the international rugby community when they moved to suppress the competing United Arab Emirates rugby league during their successful 2015 competition by having their president, Sol Mokdad, imprisoned without trial.[1]
