The Good And Bad Of Rugby League 2014-15
On the playing field, however, Kandy SC, although sharper in attack, was unable to command the authority one expects of favourites, due mainly to Navy’s tenaciousness in defence, which drove the home team to frustration – and that in turn, forced them into committing errors. Not surprisingly, all of the sailors’ dozen points came via penalties. And the fortunes of each team ebbed and flowed; the lead changed hands no less than four times.

Political scrum hits rugby’s unholy ghost
In reality, Seneviratne’s role in the rugby fraternity has been overshadowed more by controversy and dubious moves than it has to do with the progress of a sport that must arguably be the most popular domestically in Sri Lanka, especially in the schools arena that his Rugby Union tried unsuccessfully to usurp two seasons ago in view of its high financial stakes and appeal to the youth following.

Lessons that are priceless often come free
Will the feat of Japan provide a booster for Asian Rugby? Whilst Asian rugby joins in the celebrations how many years more will there be before a second team from Asia will be able to join Japan at the top of World Rugby.

QUESTION?

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
