Sri Lanka to contest Asian Youth Rugby Championship

Sri Lanka to contest Asian Youth Rugby Championship

The Sri Lanka National Under 20 Rugby team will leave for Singapore on 11 December to participate in the 20th Asian Youth Rugby Championship. Omalka Gunarathne will lead the Sri Lanka National Roll Ball team while Kevin Dixon will be his deputy. Sanath Martis will be the coach of the team.

The Asian Rugby Football Tournament (ARFT) was established in 1969. It is the second oldest established international rugby tournament in the World. From 2009-2014 the tournament was called the Asian 5 Nations (A5N). From 2015, under ARFU’s new name of ‘Asia Rugby’, the tournament continues as the Asia Rugby Championship (ARC).

The team posed for a photograph with Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara. Sports Ministry secretary Dr. W.M.R.B. Dissanayaka, Sports Director General K.D.S. Ruwanchandra, Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Association chief controller Denzil Darlin and coach Sanath Martis are also present.
