There are several problems with the Maltese waterpolo league though. The national team players all play for the same teams (although luckily, it's now 3 teams insead of 2), which means that the games between those teams are the only ones that really matter and if a team drops points elsewhere they're pretty much out of the running. In terms of international players we can attract top stars... many many Olympic gold medalists have played here and a few years ago Sliema had a player considered to be the best left-handed player of all time. I think this year they've changed it so that only one international player can be in the pitch at the same time... we'll see how that affects the sport.

The other main problem is that our winter league is an absolute joke. There are only 5 or 6 games. The best Maltese player plays for an Italian team except during the summer, and he is one of their best.

The sad reality is that the government itself does not allocate enough resources to waterpolo (don't know about rugby). Any schemes etc. are always directed towards football.

EDIT: regarding forgetting this sport, many of the summer league games definitely have higher attendances than most of the football matches (except for the top ones). But then again those who attend football matches have turned into a sort of community now too (like waterpolo), with attendances always falling.

We did it We did it We did it... :lol: :lol: :lol:
we defeated the Turks again... (against them we will give everything irrespective of what sport it is... when we see them we see blood) what a match !!! 10- 10 and (4) - (3) on penalties.
At least we avoided the last position...
well done boys
Proud of you
The Maltese waterpolo national team clinched its first-ever victory in a European Championship when they defeated Turkey 14-13 in a penalty shoot-out in a play-off for 15th and 16th place.
It was a brave performance from the Maltese team who gave everything they had to try and avoid conceding their seventh successive defeat and avoid bottom spot in the prestigious continental championship. [source]

The guys on the men's tour are just hilarious. So many of them have a great sense of humor.

Congratulations to Maltese waterpolo player Stevie Camilleri who is officially the top scorer of the European Championships despite us finishing in 15th place with only one victory. =D> And congratulations to Serbia, the winners of the tournament.
