  • Members of Aggreko Dynamos have become a major attraction at Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens. The group hails from Australia but are very familiar with Dubai crowds, having performed at the tournament for many years.

Dubai: The hugely popular pack of rugby cheerleaders, the Aggreko Dynamos, arrived in Dubai on Sunday ahead of the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, which kicks off in three days.

The Aggreko Dynamos have become a major attraction at the tournament over the years and this year will be no different as the eight acrobatic dancers prepare to wow the crowds this weekend.

The group hails from Australia but are very familiar with Dubai crowds, having performed at the tournament for many years.

However, director and choreographer for the group, Amber Field, explained there will be some significant additions to their performance this year.

"This year we have some new faces, new songs and some serious gymnasts amongst the group," explained Field.

"I can't wait to get my girls out there performing to an awesome crowd and along side all the fantastic rugby. This year in my spare time back in Australia, I have been involved with a Brazilian Salsa Show, so look out for some Latin influence in the routines this year as well," added Field, who admitted that the Dubai tournament converted her into a rugby fan.

Tickets to the event are still available online on www.dubairugby7s.com until Wednesday.
