Joes look for bonus point win over Zahira

The confrontation between St.Joseph’s College Maradana and Zahira College Maradana in the Singer 'A' Division inter-Schools league rugby first round match at Havelock Park today, should turn out to be a one-sided affair. The match will kick off at 4.00 pm.

St. Joseph’s who beat Science College Mount Lavinia (20-14) and St.Anthony’s College Kandy by 38-5 last week in Nittawela under the leadership of Tharindu De Alwis will go out as firm favourites. The forte of the Joes has been their speedy three quarter line who are certain to give a torrid time to the Zahirian outfit.

Zahira who lost to Trinity College Kandy (11-22) and (8-19) to Science College last week will have to be at their best if they are to at least make a match against this formidable Joes side.

Going by the two teams' starting line ups and the performance so far in the ongoing ‘Singer’ Inter-School league rugby tournament, St.Joseph’s will completely go out for a bonus point win against head coach Colin Denish’s Zahira outfit today.
