Malaysian Rugby Union (Kesatuan Ragbi Malaysia) is the representative of Malaysian rugby. They have good competition with their neighbours Singapore, and the Singapore-Malaysia were well contested and well viewed matched.[citation needed]

Malaysian rugby is also very promising with many new players embracing the sport. In 2013, rookies Razman Arsad were brought to the team and becoming the top scorer, scoring 69 tries in his first season. Meanwhile, Nureikmar Muhamad has also made a large impact which led to him becoming the vice captain of the team. The new coach has led the team to many victories that includes over the Philippines. The most important thing however is the youth as, young starlets like Abdul Izzudin, David Liong, Eugene Ong, John Ng and Terrence Loh has cultivated the country to go in the right direction.[citation needed]
