Schoolboy rugby stars for Navy and Air Force

Several outstanding schoolboy ruggerites have joined the Navy and Air Force and will turn out for them in the 2011 rugby season. Peterite and Sri Lanka Youth player Soyuru Anthony and his team-mate Lakith Perera, Trinity flanker Shannon Armstrong and Wesley and Sri Lanka under 20 scrum half A. Omar have joined the Navy and are turning out for the sailors in the Defence Services rugby tournament.

Their presence should further strengthen the Navy team who enjoyed an excellent league tournament in which they finished third and stormed into the Clifford Cup final with a sensational 19-12 win over CR in the semi-final before losing to Kandy SC in the final.

The Sri Lanka Air Force have obtained the services of four Sri Lanka Youth players from Kingswood – skipper Rajitha Sansoni, winger Prabath Jayalath, lock forward Chethiya Wadugodapitiya and hooker U. Jayasuriya..

These four players will turn out for Air Force next year along with prop forward Jayantha Ranaweera, lock forward Navinda Pullikuttiarachchi and full back Radhika Hettiarachchi who joined them for the Clifford Cup knock-out tournament in which they went down fighting to Kandy SC (24-27) in the semi-final.

The Airmen came off with flying colours in the Club Rugby Sevens in which they were edged out by CR and FC (19-21) in the Cup Championship final. They were richly rewarded with four of their players – Chanaka Chandimal, Charith Seneviratne, Dilan de Zoysa and Radhika Hettiarachchi being picked to play for Sri Lanka in the Shanghai Rugby Sevens.
