Defending champs Royal take on Vidyartha

Defending schools rugby league champions Royal College will not find it easy when they take on new comers to the top division rugby Vidyartha College in a schools under 19 'A' Division rugby tournament match to be played at Nittawala tomorrow at 4.30 p.m.

Last week, Royal College scored a comprehensive 45-5 win over D. S. Senananayake College while Vidyartha College promoted from the bowler division this year came up with a top class performance to held the strong Isipathana College to a 19 all draw, sending out warning signals to other schools that they are a team to watch. Vidyartha College will have the home advantage while the Royalists will have to watch out to stop their opponents from spring a surprise.

Trinity College will take on their traditional rivals St. Anthony's College in an interesting match to be played at Nittawala today.

Last week Trinity College squeezed through to a 25-19 win over science college unable to penetrate the defence put up by the science college the lions had to go for the option of kicking the penalties which came their way and this paid dividends and brought them victory.

The Antonious could not be happy about their performance against Kingswood College last week which they lost 15-30 after drawing first blood. Their defence left much to be desired and in fact was much suspect. These was one instance of them going for a big deep inside their opponents territory but they allowed on interception to take place and the Kingswoodians carried the ball a goal 80 metres to score near the posts which brought them 7 points and sealed victory.

If not for this lapse, this would have been a close game.

In any case a Trinity Antonian clash in any sports is a closely contested affair and today's match will be no exception.
