My name is Liam Scicluna and I’m a proud rugby player for my home nation of Malta.
I started playing rugby four years ago, when a friend introduced me to the sport. After my first session, I was hooked.
From not knowing the rules or even being able to catch a ball, four years ago, I feel I’ve come a long way: being a first-team player for my local club, current national champions Falcons, and being capped for the national teams in both Rugby Union and Rugby League. For me though, rugby has been more than about winning trophies and having the privilege of being able to represent my home nation of Malta: although I take pride in my success, I am more proud that rugby has helped me to grow and become a better person. Rugby taught me discipline, teamwork, resilience, and humility; and for every game won and lost on the pitch, I’ve learned new life lessons and been able to experience and embrace new cultures and understandings. From playing rugby, I have been able to foster new friendships with people from around the globe and from all walks of life. I am blessed to have had the experiences I have had, and I feel blessed to share my story with you now.
My ultimate goal with rugby is to continue my journey as a Maltese national player and to be a part of the Malta Sevens squad for the 2023 Small Nations’ games. I was on the right track to achieve my dream, but I have suffered a shoulder injury for which I need an operation – a tear of the supraspinatus tendon and a suspected capsular tear. I have looked at all of my options and an operation is the only way I will be able to keep playing the sport I love.
The waiting list for such an operation is approximately three years, so I am trying to secure a private operation so that I can return to playing rugby quicker and can be able to fulfil my dream of representing Malta in 2023. The quote I received for such an operation is €4500, which is a lot of money for one individual. I know it is a lot to ask, but if there is any chance that you could spare any money to help me raise the money for my operation, to help me continue my dream of proudly representing Malta again, I would be so grateful for your support. So far, I already have the backing of my wonderful family, friends, and club, but I just need to be able to find that last bit of support to help me on my journey. I’m not asking anybody to be a superhero; if you have anything spare and want to help me out, whatever you can give would be amazing and very much appreciated - no matter how small!
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and I look forward to sharing the rest of my journey with you.
With all of my respect and love,
