Inquiry over age dispute


A complaint lodged by Isipathana College against the Vidyartha College rugby side, alleging that they fielded four over-aged players in a game between the two schools, is due to be examined at an inquiry held by the Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Football Assocation (SLSRFA) on Tuesday, the sports body’s Secretary, Susantha Mendis stated.

If Vidyartha is found guilty the match, which ended 19-19, will be awarded to Isipathana, giving them an opportunity to win the league championship. However, Vidyartha College Coach Anil Jayasinghe stressed that the school has nothing to hide.
“They can make any allegation they want but we have the documentation to prove that we have done nothing wrong. How come they are all of a sudden saying this after nearly one and a half months?” Jayasinghe said.

Mendis too asserted that Vidyartha officials were in possession of all the relevant documents required to disprove any allegation against the team. – DS
