On 15s rugby, the MRFU said that Rugby Europe had announced the postponement of 15s rugby on a competition basis until the end of 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, the MRFU said that, with Rugby Europe’s support, they are looking into organising a one-off friendly in the fourth quarter of 2021, though this is dependent on the Covid-19 situation at the time.

The MRFU said that it is looking for corporate partners who may be interested in discussing support to make such an event happen.

They also thanked Rugby Europe, SportMalta and the Malta Olympic Committee for their support.
