Kunsill Studenti Universitarji (KSU) and the Malta University Sports Club (MUSC) have reached an agreement with the Sliema Stompers Rugby Football Club- the current Maltese League and Cup champions- in setting up the University of Malta Rugby squad.
Earlier this year, KSU and MUSC published a call for interest targeting University of Malta and JuniorCollege students which resulted in more than thirty applicants.
Students will benefit from specialised training within the existing structures of the Sliema Stompers RFC and will be able to make use of all resources at its disposal. This opportunity to train in a professional environment will ensure that student players develop their sporting abilities in a holistic manner, ensuring that they understand the values of discipline and respect which the sport prides itself on.
The new recruits will also be able to take advantage of the expertise a significant number of international players have to give.
Training is set to begin on the 25thAugust 2015, and will take place every Tuesday and Thursday at Tigne Point, Sliema from 8pm to 9.30pm.
