Maltese Coaches Complete Rlef Level Two Course


Malta rugby league internationals Clifford Debattista and Roderick Attard and MRL official Anthony Micallef have returned from London following an intense coaching course under the auspices of the Rugby League European Federation (RLEF) at Brunel University.

Attard completed the course as part of his rehabilitation following a two year anti-doping ban handed down to the 26-year-old in March 2010.

The Maltese coaches were among a delegation of more than 19 countries including the USA, Jamaica, Italy and Russia; and worked with leading coaching development staff from England's Rugby Football League (RFL) as well as spending time with England head coach Steve McNamara, former Ireland coach Andy Kelly and a host of ex professional players.

The coaches, two based in Malta and one in Gozo, completed their time abroad as guests at Twickenham Stoop for Harlequins' Super League clash against Hull FC before completing a post match analysis with Harlequins head coach Rob Powell.
