Malta Marauders 2011

Malta Marauders is Malta’s only touring veterans rugby team. The team was formed in 2003, in response to a growing demand to offer¬†similar opposition to touring Veterans teams visiting Malta. Since then, Marauders has hosted teams from many countries, including UK, France, Spain, Sweden, Israel, Netherlands and Italy.

Malta Marauders is comprised of both Maltese and expatriate players. Although many of the team members have retired from regular competition, some are still playing members of local league teams. Others are now refereeing.

Malta Marauders Team

The team tours annually, and hosts a Veterans tournament in Malta every May.

Here's the team who played the first Marauders game in 2003!

This is a team photo of the first Malta Marauders team of 2003, prior to a game against Old Ashtonians. Our very first game of that year was especially interesting. By mistake we were contacted by, and played, a team of Vets, as in vetinarians, rather than Veterans. The game took place at Marsa in the centre of the athletics track. If anyone can remember the name of the team we played (I think they were Irish), or if you were a player in that team, please let me know!
