Gozo’s own Clifford Debattista of Għajnsielem is a Gozitan rugby player developed in Malta and is looking forward to developing the mere thought of the game into a true passion for the many Gozitans that have considered taking up the game.

“Rugby is a great game and I know there is interest by many to take up the game in Gozo. Starting off with these sessions in Gozo is the perfect way for any players to get involved” says the Malta rugby league international.

An introductory week of rugby league sessions will take place in Gozo with coaching delivered by Debattista and Rugby League European Federation (RLEF) Malta Development Officer Anthony Micallef.

The sessions are designed to teach the basic skills of Rugby League including passing, catching, kicking, evasion etc as well as promoting strong team work ethics.
