It is with heavy hearts that the MRFU must announce that it will be withdrawing its participation in the upcoming Rugby Europe 7s Competition, due to Serbia remaining on the red travel list. Despite the immense effort and sacrifice made by all players who form part of the squads, we simply cannot ask them to sacrifice the two weeks necessary to quarantine after the tournament.

We as a Union fully respect the decisions made by the Health Authorities and are grateful for all the work they have done to guide us through the Pandemic.  We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the staff at the Health Authorities, SportMalta, and the Malta Olympic Committee who guided and assisted us in preparing for the competition.

It cannot be understated how proud we are of all the players and technical staff who have been preparing for this competition, as we are certain they would have brought the results fitting of a National Team.  We are sorely disappointed that they will not be able to prove this on the pitch, but we are sure they will continue to persevere to bring their best to the pitch and game of Rugby when we are able to do so again.

The MRFU Council.
