Rugby union in San Marino is a minor but growing sport.

Governing body[edit]

The governing body is the Federazione Sammarinese Rugby, which was set up in 2004 by the brothers Giacomo and Michele Rossi.[1] It is affiliated to FIRA

History[edit]

Although San Marino is not a major rugby playing nation, it is surrounded by Italy which is one of the players in the Six Nations.

Aside from the national team, there is one major club, the Rugby Club San Marino.[2] Unlike some microstates which have had to contend with lack of facilities, San Marino's main problem is one of population.
