Sri Rahula beat St. John’s

Sri Rahula College Katugastota did it in style, pulled off a 45 points (five goals and two tries) to 19 (two goals and a try) victory against St. John’s College in their inter school rugger played at Pallekelle on Sunday. The winners dominated the game; they won plenty of balls on the loose, played well in the three quarter moves, ran the ball at every given opportunity and tackled the Johns side well

Win or lose is part of the game, in terms of physique, both teams were equally strong and were engaged in a hard fought battle, they showed how the oval shape ball should be handled as both three-quarters of either side were superior and the forwards of the two teams were also in good shape playing a good game driving into rucks and mauls.

Both teams surprised everybody with their excellent display of run and pass rugby, they were fast and furious and the ball handling exceptional. They used their rugby skills to good effect. St. Johns had god chances of scoring, but the Rahula guys were more with the ball. The losers made a big impact, although they lost, they were good in their forward play.
