Schools rugby officials still lost at sea?

Singer league tournament:

Officials of the Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Football Association are still struggling to kick-start the remaining matches of the League tournament three weeks after it was suspended following the Easter Sunday bomb blasts despite the heads of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Police assuring the country was back to normal.

“Officials running schools rugby are lost in normal situations as we have been witnessing in the past, so you could just imagine them trying to run affairs at a time some people are still running scared of bombs”, asked one analyst.

There is only speculation that the matches could recommence on May 24 but the venues are causing another problem as the unfancied Sugathadasa stadium in Colombo has been touted as a possible location.

Not many fans have shown a keenness to patronize rugby at the Sugathadasa Stadium which is considered an inconvenient venue at a time that well secured grounds like the Royal College Complex and the new state-of-the-art venue at St. Peter’s College are available. But fans can be certain that the Bradby Shield match between Royal College and Trinity will be played at a venue Kandy.
