The Sabaragamuwa Stallions together with the Security Forces Headquarters – Jaffna organised a rugby workshop recently at the Duraiappa Stadium Jaffna. Over 80 students from seven schools; including Manipay College, Central College Jaffna, St. Patrick’s College, St. Anthony’s College Jaffna, St. John’s College Jaffna, Chavakachcheri Hindu College and St. Joseph’s College Jaffna participated in this session.

Additionally, a workshop was also conducted for the coaches of these schools with the intent of raising the standard of rugby while improving their coaching skills.

The sessions conducted comprised of both class room sessions that addressed the technical aspects of rugby while the field sessions focused on skills development.

The sessions were conducted under the guidance of former national coach Tony Amit with the assistance of Shantha Dharmaratne the junior rugby coach of Zahira College.

Speaking at the event in Jaffna, Waruna de Silva, Director Operations of the Sabaragamuwa Stallions mentioned that workshop was conducted on the request of Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe of the Security Forces Headquarters in Jaffna.

He mentioned that together, they felt that a unique programme of this nature will give students an opportunity to understand the benefits of sports and how it adds value and enriches a student’s life. Under the guidance of Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, the event was organised with the assistance of the Commanding Officer 23rd Gajaba Regiment Lieutenant Colonel Aruna Wijekoon.

This is the second such event organised by the Sabaragamuwa Stallions this year. A similar event was also held at S. Thomas’ College Mt. Lavinia in June this year, where the junior rugby players of the school got the opportunity to meet the four All Blacks players who represented the Sabaragamuwa Stallions at the Carlton Rugby Sevens.

As one of the founding franchises of the Carlton Super Sevens, Sabaragamuwa Stallions embarked on this initiative that will foster Sri Lankan sports and enable School children to learn the spirit of fair-play, team work and togetherness.

The Carlton Super Sevens Rugby tournament is a national level endeavour that has been carried out since 2011 by ‘Tharunyata Hetak’, under the patronage of Member of Parliament, Namal Rajapaksa.

This workshop is also in line with the vision of ‘Tharunyata Hetak’ for the general progress of humanity and its aspiration to create a common national identity and embrace the best global integration that can be offered.

Sabaragamuwa Stallions is managed by NSports; a national franchise of Sri Lanka’s elite rugby sevens.
