Lawrence Macrides (born 24 July 1970) is a Cypriot rugby player who plays for the Cyprus national rugby union team and has done since 2007. He plays his club rugby in England for Chingford Rugby Club. He had played for 2 Cypriot clubs before; Limassol Crusaders and Nicosia Barbarians.


He can play both "Lock" and "Prop." Macrides made his debut on 24 March 2007 against Greece in Paphos, which was his country's first international. He has achieved 9 international caps. Lawrence is the oldest player on the Cyprus national rugby union team aged 41.

Early life

Macrides was born in Nicosia on the island of Cyprus. He learnt the game of rugby whilst studying at Plymouth University. On his return from his studies, Lawrence started working for the Ministry of Agriculture as a Fisheries and Marine Officer, and he started playing for the Limassol Crusaders where he won his first International Cap against Greece in March 2007.

That same year Lawrence took part in the FIRA sponsored coaching course Part 1, and he moved to the Nicosia Barbarians. Injury during training for the 3D tournament kept him out of the squad for those games, and regrettably, a shoulder injury kept him out of the Israel game.

Personal life

Lawrence is married to Sarah, who organized the 2 very successful International matches held in Nicosia during the 3D tournament. He also has a son called Harry, who also plays rugby for Chingford Rugby Club.
