Rajans Vs Royal - Panadura

Mr Hisham Abdeen's magic created a whirlwind as Rajans crushed Royal - Panadura 75 to 10. Rajans dominated the match from the very first second till the final whistle. The spectators were stunned as they could not believe their eyes how the Rajans Rugby team was evolved through past few days. It's indeed a sign of comeback from the Rajans!

This is what the local newspaper Daily Mirror has to say . . .

Dharmaraja in crushing win over Royal Panadura

In what was expected to be an exciting quarter final game of the Under 20 Premier inter-schools knockout rugby tournament between Dharmaraja and Royal Panadura in fact turned out to be a one sided affair with the Rajans running away convincing winners by 75 points to 10 at Longden Place yesterday.

The fast open rugby played by Dharmaraja who have contested in the top division for over three seasons was too much for Royal Panadura who emerged the Division 1C champions this season.

The Panadura boys would have no doubt realised the disparity of the standards in confronting a top division side and were rattled by the Rajans from the word go. Dharmaraja having taken a comfortable 41-05 lead in the first half accumulated their points through five goals and eight tries as against the two tries by Royal Panadura.

For Dharmaraja fly half Rochana Hettiarachchi scored three tries with centre Buwaneka Udagamuwa and No8 Kavindu Hettiarachchi going over twice. One try each was scored by scrum half Roshan Wickramaratne, hooker Gihan Jayasinghe, full back Kavinda Hettiarachchi, flanker Kavinda Jayasundara and wing three quarter Dilantha Madusanka while Rochana made the five conversions.
