Former rugby captain of S. Thomas’ College Mount Lavinia Rohitha ‘Chichi’ Rajapaksa will take over as consultant coach of Thurstan College first XV rugby team in the forthcoming 2018/19 inter-school season.

Rajapaksa who has vast experience in representing and playing club rugby had a coaching stint with Science College Mount Lavinia. He is the present vice captain of the CH and FC rugby team.

“Thurstan has a very good young side with several talented players who had played very good rugby for them last year. It’s very encouraging to coach a developing rugby team like Thurstan. I find it a very challenging task to build players from scratch to identify talent,” said Rajapaksa who captained the unbeaten 2014/15 Inter-Club league and Clifford Cup knock-out champions Navy Sports Club.
