Trinity College is expected to open its 2017 rugby season with the match against Wesley College and ends the season with the Bradby. It is played annually between two schools in the country and traditional rivals. The encounter consists of two legs, one being played in Colombo, and the other in Kandy. The winner is decided on the aggregate of the scores from these two matches, usually played a few weeks apart.  These were the dates fixed but now it is understood that the tournament has been put forward by a month, so these dates will be changed.
