On the 5 November 2011 the Gibraltar Rugby Football Union (GRFU) fielded a national team in its first official Test Match. The fixture was against the Belgium Development Team and was held in Brussels. The final score was: Belgium Development 20 – Gibraltar 8.
Test Caps have officially been awarded to the Gibraltar team players, this came after playing and defeating a Cyprus XV and an Israel A team. Their first full international came against Malta in March 2015.
The GRFU went through the process of FIRA/AER (European Rugby Federation) membership. The GRFU had planned other international fixtures for April 2012. This however was blocked by Spain. This came as a surprise as UEFA and the ICC recognize Gibraltar.
The Gibraltar national rugby sevens team plays regularly in tournaments, particularly in the Tangier Sevens.
