Malaysia claimed an inspiring 31-26 win, despite a late surge from Sri Lanka in a friendly international rugby match played in Kuala Lumpur a short while ago today (4).

Eventually Malaysia won the game with a tally of four converted tries and a penalty. 

Sri Lanka scored from two converted tries and four penalties. 

On Thursday (2) Sri Lanka President's XV beat Malatsia Barbarians by 55-14.
