Peterite-Wesley semi final evenly poised

The match between high riding St.Peters College Bambalapitiya and giant killers Wesley College Colombo will be evenly poised in their Milo ‘A’ Division inter school President trophy knock out rugby tournament second semifinal match to be played at Sugathadasa Stadium tomorow (Sunday) at 4:15pm.

The Peterites lads under the leadership of acting captain cum play maker Jason Karunaratne and coached by Sanath Martis assisted by Bhanuka Nanayakkara and Rajiv Perera (Pikka) have an immaculate record in this year’s concluded league rugby tournament where they were placed third for 2018 school rugby season.

Peters cause has been severely bolstered by the presence of their ever reliable speedy three quarter line with their famous three quarter moves through scrum half Karunaratne, fly half Kenneth Wimaladasa, centres Madushanka brothers (Dilshan and Rukshan), winger Mark Assauw and they also have a reliable place kicker in full back Shehan Liyanapathirana and his

contribution in this match with his kicking boot will be vital for a Peterite victory.

On the other hand Wesley College possesses a good team with play maker centre Sahan Hansaja along with their entire three quarter line can play an outstanding game to bring victory to their school exactly like they did against much fancied Isipathana College last time around in the quarter finals last week.

Wesley College are coached by Samoan Paul Toiya along with experienced Sri Lanka national rugby player Reeza Mubarak and old boy and national player Dulanjana Wijesinghe.

Meanwhile this will be also a do or die battle for Wesley College and if they lose this battle to St.Peters College today , then it could be worse for them as their hopes of getting in to the finals will be a mere dream and they will crash out of the tournament in disgusts.

Referee: Aaqil Jamaldeen
