Kandy SC registered their second win of the inter club rugby season when they beat Police 43-11 at Police Park on Saturday. It was a one sided match from the start and Police SC were unable to trouble their opponents from Kandy.

Kandy took a big lead of 31-6 at the end of the first half and it was a difficult task for Police to come back from that situation and winning against Kandy.

In the first half Anurudda Wilwara opened the scoring for Kandy. Then Thilina Wijesingha scored two tries while Jason Dissanayake also scored for them.

In the second half, Dhanushka Ranjan scored the first try and then Gayan Weeraratna also crossed the goal line. It was a good effort from Kandy. They scored seven tries overall and that gave them a very useful bonus point.

Police only scored one try and that was scored by Hashan Fernando and Sandesh Jayawickrama put over two penalties for them, but that was a poor performance from them again.

Police should turn things around quickly otherwise they will lose most of their matches. They lack experience which is their problem.
Havelocks vs Air Force

Havelock Sports Club is doing well at the moment because they have won both their first games so they are on top of the league. They played against Air Force and won 46-23 last week.

Nishon Perera played well and scored a try. Winger Kevin Dixon also scored two tries. They are unstoppable at the moment so Kandy will have to keep up their good form.

Reza Mubarak also did well in that game with his kicks so did Hirantha Perera.

Air Force fought hard and scored 23 points so they can be very proud of their performance in that game. Better rugby can be expected of the Air Force team in the future.

CR and FC VS Navy SC

CR and FC played a sensational match against Navy Sports Club. They were behind by 23 to 7 but they came back in the second half to win the match.

Tharinda Ratwatta was the pick of the players easily for his brave performance and his tries and conversions were the reason they won the match.

Ratwatte scored a try and made three conversions. Mohamad Shashan also did well for the reds.

Navy played well in the first half but they could not do much in the second half.

CH and FC vs Army

CH and FC lost their second game of the season going down to Army 20-15.

It was CH's game but in the second half Army played so well and scored two tries to emerge winners.
