Kandy SC walking off after Abu Dhabi refused to take the field

By Indika Amarasinghe

Abu Dhabi Saracens could be fined after forfeiting their West Asia Champions League rugby match against Kandy SC yesterday night at the Dubai International Stadium.

Abu Dhabi took offence on the organizers not arranging an ambulance on the ground before the start of the game which is a requirement for any match under the IRB rules.

Hence the Abu Dhabi Saracens team refused to play the match and walked out of the ground in protest.

The organizers of the West Asian Champions League rugby tournament will declare their final verdict on the issue today.
