The Slovak national rugby union team represents Slovakia in international rugby union. Slovakia have yet to qualify for a Rugby World Cup. They are currently affiliated to FIRA-AER, but not yet to the IRB.

History[edit]

They played their first match in 2006 against Monaco which they lost 0-6. They were however awarded the points, after it was discovered that Monaco had used ineligible players.

In 2009 they withdrew from European competition for financial reasons,[1] after being unable to secure sponsorship. However, they returned to European competition in 2010, playing in the 2010–12 European Nations Cup Third Division.
