Fans clash as Galatasaray lift Turkish title
Galatasaray lifted the Turkish title for the
18th time on Saturday after a goalless draw saw them deny rivals
Fenerbahce, but crowd trouble marred the occasion as tensions

Galatasaray fans greeted their success with a noisy concert of
klaxons as thousands descended on Istanbul's Taksim thoroughfare.
Kingswood in the process of team building
Kingswood College which is the first school in
Sri Lanka to play rugby is in the process of team building as the
nucleus from last year's side will not do service for them. Thus
their coach Priyantha Gunaratne will have a tough job on his hands.
This situation stems from the fact that last season they were
largely dependent on a few players who performed very well but their
absence this season has created a big void in the team.
