ABOUT US

Along with an eye catching logo featuring a Maltese Knight which has become the moniker of the national team, the Malta Rugby League has selected to play in a red and white jersey reflective of its nations colours that boasts the world renowned Maltese cross emblazoned across it.

Malta's national team debuted in 2004 against the British Defence Forces coming away with a 78-0 win.

Although Malta has yet to qualify for the Rugby League World Cup, the team has made remarkable progression since its first international with varying levels of success playing the sport in Malta/Gozo, across Europe, the United Kingdom and down in Australia.

MRL's successful bid for Rugby League European Federation (RLEF) affiliate membership was awarded in 2013.

After the International Rugby League (RLIF) rankings were released in November 2018, the small island nation reached its highest ranking in history (16th).

A noteworthy achievement for a country of less than half a million people with little to no resources available for the 13-man code.

“Maltese people are very proud of their rugby league team. A packed suburban stadium tonight was evidence to that. As was an impressive live-stream audience of over thirty thousand viewers”

David Axisa - Manager - 6 May 2017
