GIBRALTAR’S rugby union side is celebrating a momentous victory after defeating Hungary 33-14 at Victoria Stadium.

The home friendly game, which followed an away victory over Hungary in October 2017, will add weight to Gibraltar’s campaign to become a competitive international rugby outfit.

Gibraltar is not currently recognised by World Rugby although the GRFU is currently lobbying for membership.

Gibraltar next face Finland at home on March 17.

“It’s always good to be back in Gib after playing in England for so long” said full back Jonny Reyes.

“It was good to get some regular games at home, it feels good.”

The exciting game saw fly half Alexander Cruz kick 11 points while there was also a first international try for second row Marc Waller.
