There is a story to Malta Rugby prior to the founding of the Rugby Association of Malta, now known as the Malta Rugby Football Union, and the Malta Rugby Football League in 1991. The game in Malta can trace its origins to the Overseas Rugby Club that was established in the post-war years (1946). The members of Overseas consisted of British and Commonwealth expatriate servicemen and Maltese civilians and military personnel who participated in competitions against Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Army teams visiting, or stationed in, Malta over the years.
Rugby in Malta is fun, with a blend of good weather, friendly and welcoming people, a good rugby match and, of course to top it up, a great after- match party with cheap drink and great party nights to follow! Now, the MRFU enjoys a growing membership of clubs, participating in a healthy League, Round Robin. The mild weather of Malta makes it an excellent venue for visiting sides as witnessed by a growing number of touring sides from year to year.
