Confusion at schools rugby knock-outs

By Harry Jayachandra

Uncertainty has engulfed the inter-school knockout rugby championships over the composition of teams, dates and venue for the event.

Above everything the tournament sponsor Milo is also in a spot of bother as the matches clash with the World T-20 and could lose out on spectator patronage.

While the venue is yet to be finalized, it remains unclear whether Royal will be contesting the event.

Chairman of Royal Rugby Committee Jehan Canagaratne said they will not be contesting but according to the Schools Rugby Association all eight teams which they have finalized are in the fray.

The eight teams are Royal, Trinity, St. Peter’s, Isipathana, Kingswood, St. Anthony’s, Wesley and Dharmaraja.

Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Football Association secretary Susantha Mendis told Ceylon Today that Royal College principal Upali Gunasekera had pledged to field the team.

Mendis said failure on the part of any school to contest the championship will result in a suspension.

The dates set aside for the matches are September 24 to 27 (quarter finals), October 6 and 7 (semi finals) and October 13 (final).
