The Maltese national rugby team has made major ground in their international efforts as it has officially made it into the World Top 10; making it the highest ranking ever achieved by a Maltese national sports team.
The team’s placement into the International Rugby League (IRL) classification is the highest ranking it has ever achieved and one of the biggest jumps in recent teams, putting Malta above celebrated teams such as Italy, Scotland and Ireland, amongst others.
Ranking is based upon results over the past four years based on the percentage of the first place team, which is New Zealand in this case.
Malta Head Coach Roderick Attard expressed pride in seeing his-hardworking players shed their blood, sweat and tears for and how years of hard work have finally paid off as the rugby team continues to make major strides worldwide.
HUGE congrats to the Maltese National Rugby Team!
