RAK Rugby and Arabian Knights honour memory of former teammate Nick Young - in pictures

Two sets of rugby players were reunited in competition on Friday for the first time since the death of Nick Young, as they played a match in honour of their former teammate.

Young suffered a fatal injury during a match - made up of a combination of players from RAK Rugby and Arabian Knights - following a collision during the vets event at the Sharjah 10s on April 27.

The 43 year old was buried in Australia earlier in May and leaves behind a wife and two young children.
