As the next Malta Rugby international game takes place in Malta on April 30 and National A training sessions re-start on 12 January all inviolved in the local game are geared up for the new year.

The national ladies team training sessions re-start on 10 January whilst the Ladies 10s Cup starts this Sat (8th Jan) under the auspices of MIA.  This follows the new sponsorship arrangement with Malta International Airport announced last November

The development of youth rugby continues even in 2011 with the U17s league starting on Sunday 9 January and running for six weeks (Kavallieri, Alligators, Gladiators and Falcons).  The U9’s and U13’s also re-commence their matches this coming Sunday.  In the meantime, it can be revealed that clubs are continuing to liaise with schools in order to continue a programme of introduction, coaching and recruitment.  This initiative which started in November has, to date, proved a tremendous success – the spirit is “fantastic” said, National Coach, Damian Neill.  To date, there are over 100 members enrolled in youth rugby.
