Penguin coaches Gary Henderson, Mark Harrington, Rob Clilverd and Dave Southern held a coaching programme for 5 days in Gibraltar to assist Gibraltar RFU, an expanding and enthusiastic club. This included Coach and Official Education.
In recent times Gibraltar have played three international matches as follows:-
|Brussels:||v Belgium U23s||Lost 8 – 20|
|Gibraltar:||v Cyprus National 15||Won 36 - 12|
|Gibraltar:||v Israel National 15||Won 25 – 12|
It is interesting to note that Israel play in division 2B of the European Nations Cup and are ranked 49th in the IRB ratings.
The Club would like to thank Louis Triay QC, one of our eminent Vice Presidents, for using his good offices in the making of the coaching arrangements. He has recently written to our Life President saying:
“Gibraltar’s rugger players and fans are all very grateful to you for the support we have received from the Penguins.”
