Rugby: MRFU Receives Sport Malta Grant

Press Release from The Malta Rugby Football Union

The Malta Rugby Football Union would like to take the opportunity to express its sincerest gratitude to Sport Malta for providing the MRFU with a grant, which will assist us with the logistics for the National Rugby Team who are on their way to the Rugby Europe playoff match this weekend against the Czech Republic in Prague.

This weekend’s match is to decide which of the two teams will be promoted to the Rugby Europe Trophy Competition. Should the Maltese Team be successful, this would signify the highest level of competition ever achieved by the Maltese National Rugby Team, and it would also be the first step towards a separate campaign which could see Malta Rugby earn a spot in the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Again, none of this would be possible without the support of the Sport Malta Council, its Chairman, the Hon. Luciano Busuttil, CEO Mark Cutajar, and the Parliamentary Secretary for Sport, the Hon. Chris Agius.

We would also like to take this opportunity to urge all of our supporters and followers to send their encouragement to the squad, and remind them that they will be able to watch the match live, via, this Saturday.  Will will also be showing the stream at the MRFU Clubhouse in Marsa.  The match kicks off at 14:00.
