Players from our under 17s squad have left for a tour to Biella in Italy’s Piedmont region.
The tour takes place from 27th to 31st October and they will be guests of Biella Rugby 1977, a club whose senior squad play in Italy’s second tier of the Italian rugby union league structure.

Biella Rugby 1977’s youth players visited Malta as guests of Kavallieri earlier this summer, training with our youths, visiting attractions around Malta and playing in a tournament against our various youth age groups.

Patrice Debiere, head of Kavallieri youths, explained, “The atmosphere between our two clubs was amazing and we promised to go and train, and play, on their home soil as soon as possible. They are generously making their professional set-up available to us, which will be great in the development of our young players.”

Speaking about the benefits of tours like this, Debiere, who will travel with the squad, continued, “These experiences are integral to our players’ development. There really is nothing better than travelling abroad with your teammates. This trip will let them test their abilities and forge closer friendships as well as team spirit. With our rugby community being so small, especially at youth levels, tours like this allow our players to expand on their rugby education and experience more competitiveness.”

The packed itinerary includes excursions to local attractions close to the Biella base, training, team building sessions and tournaments (including a rugby match played in Halloween costumes).
We would like to thank our hosts, Biella Rugby 1977, our dedicated coaching and back room Kavallieri staff, and the parents.

We would also like to extend our gratitude to our sponsors,and the Malta Rugby Football Union for their invaluable support. Kavallieri Rugby Football Club caters for boys and girls ranging from 6 to 17 years of age, as well as men’s and women’s seniors.
