Ned Haig and David Sanderson, would have been proud to witness the Sri Lanka schools Rugby Sevens event on August 12th. A game they conceived in 1883 in Melrose Scotland, now being played around the world at many levels.
Fletcher’s field was taken over for the day by six of the best Sri Lankan School alumni groups. Flags and jerseys were proudly on display. Spectators, Ex Rugby greats, young and old fans of this fast paced game all gathered on this extremely hot August day to watch their school team battle for the coveted Quentin Israel Memorial Trophy.
A very big Thank you to the STCOBA- CANADA team lead by D R Weerasinghe, Gamini Kumarage and Gerhard Munaweera for planning and leading the JOC to pull off this very successful event. Also behind the scenes we had Exco members Daya Ginige, Malik Candappa, Prasad Jinasena, Ram thirugnanam, Rajit Kadirgamar and president Jehan Ahamed all come together to lend a helping hand during the event. The 2017/2018 Exco would like thank the OBA members who supported the event by attending.
