Having completed his Hartpury College and University education, it was announced in May 2018 that Maliq had signed for the Cornish Pirates.

Liverpool-born Maliq, a full-back who can also play at wing or outside centre, has represented Netherlands at under 17,18, and 19 levels, plus England Students. Also, he has twice been a BUCS Final winner with Hartpury University, scoring a try in win against Exeter University at Twickenham in 2017, and repeating the exercise against Cardiff Met in 2018. He has also played for Bristol United in the A League.

Being born in Liverpool, Maliq had almost no choice but to take up football. Indeed, he is a former member of Liverpool FC’s academy. However, all that changed, first when he lived in Cyprus, and then especially when he moved to the Holland and was educated at the British School in the Netherlands. He played for his newly adopted country, including a try-scoring performance and noted win against France at the 2013 Wellington Festival.

Maliq has an older brother, Marcus, who has played professional rugby in France, Wales and Italy and is now a player-coach in Holland.

During his first season with the Cornish Pirates, Maliq made 10 appearances for the club, including making four Championship starts. He had shown resilience to take in his stride chances that came his way, and in the final game was a try-scorer when coming off the bench in the team’s victory at Doncaster Knights.
