Isipathana to clash in under 13, 15 and 19 Premier trophy finals
By Shamseer Jaleel
Isipathana Maha Vidyalaya will be all out to add three more trophies from the Premier Trophy rugby tournament finals which will be worked off at CR & FC today. The lads from Havelock town who have shown consistent form this season bagged the two sevens trophies organized by Milo and the Singer Sri Lankan sevens.

They outclassed the Thomians by 39-13 in one of the semi finals and will ace the Wesley side in the finals. Earlier in the league the "Green Shirts" edged out Wesley by 20-15 and will be going in to this game as clear favourites.

In the under 13 and the under 15 games the lads from Havelock town should have things their own way if they play to their true potential. In the under 17 game the lads from Kandy who are participating for the first time in this tournament have the edge over Wesley. This will be a good experience for the Trinity college juniors, as most of these lads will don the colourful first fifteen jersey.

In the club section it should be a closely fought out game as there is nothing between the two sides. The park club with their Tongans dishing out excellent rugby this season and their school leavers namely former Trinitian Saliya Kumara and former Thomian Thajudeen are the players to watch.

The Red Shirts who are no push overs have some very good young talent with experienced Shamly Nawas leading the side ably supported by Kishan Musafer, Mohamed Mushtaq, Haren Kaluarachchi, Sumedha Jayasinghe and Megara Madupatabendi are all out to give the Red Shirts their first trophy this season.
