Lions outplay Sylvestrians 110-0

Trinity College trounced St. Sylvester's College, Kandy by the huge margin of 110 points (5 goals, 15 tries) to nil in a friendly pre-season rugby encounter played at Pallekelle on Saturday. At half time lions 38-0.

The Trinitians were earlier scheduled to play a side from the Army but this did not come off and a match against the Sylvestrians was hurriedly arranged. It must be said that the Sylvestrians were not really ready to 'Kick off' but they agreed to the request by the Trinitians.

This match turned out to be a one sided affair with the lions dominating in all departments of the game which resulted in them moving the ball with gay abandon and a glut of tries were produced.

Skipper and hooker Damith Dissanayake showed pleasing form and made in roads into the defence of the Sylvestrians to score four tries and vice captain No. 8 Shenon Armstrong in addition to stopping the Sylvestrians from entering the lions territory also put up a fine performance to plant four tries.

This perhaps was too much for the Sylvestrians and they succumb to pressure after the turn around allowing the lions to cut loose in the second half to score as many as 72 points.

The other try scorers were Kanchana Ramanayake (3), Akila Dissanayake (2), S.I. Perera (2), Duminda Nayaratne (2), Rehan Weerakoon (1), Asif Ainaf (1), Mohamed Shashar (1), Rukmal Dodantenna (1). Nimesh Yatawara added the extra points to five of the tries.
