The Cyprus National Rugby Union Team represents the country of Cyprus in international rugby union. The team are nicknamed the Giants and Moufflons. They played their first international match against Greece in 2007 winning by 39-31.
Cyprus play their home games in pale and dark blue shirts, with sponsor Artio across the torso. The shirt has yet to be donned by any players known outside the local area and it is reasonable to presume this will always be the case.
Cyprus until now have the enviable reputation of being unbeaten, having won their first game against Greece 39-31. They continued their great start in international rugby by beating Azerbaijan 29-0 at the Pafiako Stadium in Paphos on October 28th, 2007. They then put in back-to-back victories against Monaco on March 31st, 2007 19-10 and Slovakia on 3rd November, 2007 38-8. They will have a harder task when they play Finland in May 2008.
