Malta Rugby Squad announced
The team is looking strong though missing scrum half Tom Holloway and fly half Rob Holloway due to injury, regular Clayton Cassar through injury and Luke Watts.
Christian Schranz gains his first start for Malta at second row and is well deserved with the effort he has put in over the past six months. Vince Stivala has his first start at scrum half and James Morris at fly half. James O' Brien starts on the left wing rather than his usual slot at full back.
The squad welcomes back James Kirk who will be playing 15 full back and also welcomes a few new additions in Rhodri Apsee who plays loose head prop. Also welcome to the squad are Rodrick Borg, Luke Debattista and Calvin Briffa who are all locally based players which shows how much local rugby is improving.
Weather in Lithuania is five degrees with a clear sky.
