Thomians out to maintain their impressive record

S. Thomasí College will be hoping to maintain their impressive record this season when they confront Trinity College Kandy in their annual inter school rugby encounter for the Canon R. S. de Saram Shield at Mount Lavinia today.

The Thomians have already made an impact in the ĎAí division league tournament where they had the better of Isipatana College having earlier gone down fighting against their traditional rivals Royal College in their opening encounter.

In contrast Trinity College the last yearís league runners up had a shock start to their campaign while losing to the newcomers St. Josephís College 24-27 at the Pallekelle Stadium.

However they were able to recover from this setback and went on to beat their home town rivals St. Anthonyís College 49-10 in the next outing.

This time of course the Trinitians will be playing away from home and face a daunting task in retaining the Shield having won last yearís fixture 15-10 following another thrilling match at the Bogambara Stadium.

Even then S. Thomasí College will take the field while brimming with confidence and look set to continue with their excellent work this season.

They showed a lot of character in the previous game where they came from behind to snatch a memorable victory.

The teams:

Trinity: M. Dushanthan, S. Wijesinghe, Damith Dissanayake, Gotabhaya Mahesh, Deshan Aluvihare, Mohamed Isham, P. Gunawardena, Shannon Armstrong, Adeep Hamid and Rean Weerakoon, Viswajith Wijesinghe (captain), Lasantha Samarasekera, Kenneth Armstrong, Akila Dissanayake, Kanchana Ramanayake.

S. Thomasí: Amrith Anrado, Anjula de Silva, Roshenka Kodithuwakku, Janit Jayasuriya, Sandeep Jayawardene, Asela Kohana, Jeewaka Hewawitharana, Rajindra Gunasekere, Mohamed Rila and Shavin Kapuwatte (captain), Arjun Manoharan, William Rudra, Anurudhdha Wilwara, Praveen Perera, Jeromy Fernando.

Royal-Peterite clash

Meanwhile Royal College will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten record this season when they take on St. Peterís College in another key inter school under 20 ĎAí division league rugby tournament match at Bambalapitiya today.

Royal have already notched up two good victories over St. Anthonyís College and S. Thomasí College Mount Lavinia and will be looking to maintain the same momentum despite performing away from home.

In contrast St. Peterís College will be coming out after a shock defeat at the hands of Isipatana College last week and will be determined to get their act together well in search of a morale boosting victory.

However last year too St. Peterís College suffered a demoralizing 12-17 defeat at the Royal College Sports Complex despite going in as the clear favourites.

St. Peterís: Johan Anderson, Salinda Mendis, Steve Nelson, Soyuru Anthony, Chathuranga Cabraal, Asitha Ratnayake, Chamith Madurawala, Shenal Dias, Rizwan Meedin and Keith Gurusinghe, Dhanushka Ranjan, Sandun Herath, Dilshan Paul (captain), Lakith Perera, Bhanuka Nanayakkara, Isuru Alwis, Devinda Fonseka, Kevin Wimaladasa, Srinath Perera.

Royal: Nikira Senanayake, Ashen Dassanayake, Udara de Silva, Shilanka Sudaraka, Ranga Perera, Shehan Pathirana, Hamza Hassen, Hasthika Bandaranaike, Aqeel Sathuk and Naren Dhason (captain), Duminda Attygalle, Shamil Ahmed, Chamara Dabare, Ranithra Chandraratne, Shabeer Mohamed.
