Gibraltar rugby team win away against Malta

Marbella Rugby Club e

GIBRALTAR rugby team made the long trip to Malta worthwhile with an emphatic 29-14 win.

Marbella Rugby ClubTries from James Russo (2), Fred Cruz, Alex Cruz and Harvey Armstrong proved too much for a Malta side which began to flag near the end of the test match.

The victory came as sweet revenge for Gibraltar’s first home defeat by Malta last year.

Alex Cruz, who converted two of the five tries, was making his debut for the national side, along with Killian Perez and David Smith.

Man of the Match was awarded jointly to Russo, for ‘tireless work at the breakdown’ and Alex Lavarello, for a ‘storming display of second row work’.

The management team were extremely pleased with the team’s performance, which combined youth and experience.
