Kandy rout Army

RUGBY: Defending champions Kandy Sports Club beat Army SC by 83 points ( 9 goals, 4 tries) to 15 ( 3 tries) with minimum effort in their Caltex League rugger match at Police Park yesterday.

The all-round strength and the robust style of play of the up country team gave no chance for the soldiers. However, they went on to plant three unconverted tries.

Kandy opened scoring in the 5th minute when they won a scrum and Radhika Hettiarachchi crashed through the open space to touch down for an unconverted try.

Thereafter there were plenty of open spaces as the speedy three quarters and the diligent set of Kandy forwards indulged in an orgy of tries as the soldiers wilted under pressure confronting a side which comprised several national players.

At the breather Kandy had topped the half century mark 52\5 with 6 goals and 2 tries to Army’s solitary try.

On resumption Kandy took the field minus their star winger Sanjeeva Jayasinghe. They scored three more goals and two more tries, as Army did well to cross their opponents line twice.

Fazil Marija (3).Sanjeeva Jayasinghe (2), Pradeep Liyangae (2), Radhika hettiarachchi (1), Imran Bisthaman (3) Walgampola (2) were the scorers for the winners. W.Kumara, Mahesh Perera and W. Dharshana were the try scorers for Army.

Aruna Jayasekera refereed.
