The eagerly awaited first round league rugby confrontation between defending champions Kandy Sports Club and number two placed Navy Sports Club will take place on Sunday at Welisara. The kick-off is scheduled for 4 pm.
It will be interesting to see whether both sides will play open rugby because these two teams have enough steppers. Kandy SC led by Roshan Weerarathne has a fine set of players who are experienced and talented. Their asset is their mobile pack which is about the best in the scene. The players from the Nittawela club will also rely more on their speedy three quarters.
Navy S.C. is packed with talented players and is led by Roshan Ranasinghe. The team has done extremely well in the four games played so far and has remained unbeaten. The team hopes to continue the good work in Sunday’s game. Navy will be at full strength.
