Riza Mubarak one of a top performers for the Sri Lankan Tuskers for over a decade and recently retired from the rugby arena will continue as a coach in the future.

Currently serving as the “backs” coach of Isipathana first fifteen team he completed level three coaching course.

“I want to gain more experience in the coaching field and am looking forward to contributing my knowledge to school level coaching development from next year,” said Mubarak. He further said that he has a plan to give back to the sport through coaching and help build athletes, physically and mentally. One of the finest full backs and most reliable place kickers in Sri Lankan rugby, during his playing days for Isipathana College, Police SC, Navy SC, Havelock SC and CR and FC, Mubarak retired from competitive rugby in March this year after a career spanning well over 15 years.

“As athletes, our main responsibility is to give back our knowledge and resources for the development of sports. Goal setting is more important. Goal setting is taking out the time to define your purpose and just the process of doing this is a big win.

It is also important to focus on those small everyday goals because that is where your commitment is put to the test,” Mubarak said. 

Mubarak last represented the CR and FC as a full back in the club league tournament which concluded recently.
