After the disappointment at home last week the young Malta Squad showed their mettle by going away to take on the Swiss professionals and coming back as worthy winners.

This time James O’Brien had his kicking boots on and scored 14 points to add to the tries by Morris, Quarendon and Apsee.

This was not an easy game against a Swiss team, many of whom play professionally in France, but when the Malta running and handling game clicks they are a class act.

A good win against a strong side which confirms Malta in Division 2A and sets them up as potential winners for promotion in the next series.
