With Kavallieri RFC looking hard to beat at the end of round one of the Cisk Lager League, all bets are off as six Maltese rugby clubs pitch their  skill, determination, speed and wit at the start of the Mediterranean Bank Cup, commencing this Saturday, 19th February at Marsa.

From this weekend until 19th March, Valletta, Falcons, Stompers, Kavallieri, Alligators and Overseas will compete in this newly named competition with the top scoring squads playing in the Mediterranean Bank Cup Final on 14th May.
