Brilliance of the ’74 Rugby Team

Everyone talks about the ’56 side under David Frank or Tyrrell Rajapakse’s side of ’87 being teams of fantastic rugby players with the unbeaten tag. Due recognition must be given to the consistently brilliant side of 1974 which also remained unbeaten and played some superlative rugby under the tutelage of the late Major Bertie Dias. Side stepping , dummies, excellent ball handling and sudden changes of direction gave them an  [ Read More ]

The way Royal’s Captain Lakshman Kaluaaratchi led his team into Longden Place in 1962 wearing their Gold and Blue striped jerseys with the crowd exploding in cheers, it had all the signs of a Battle Royale. With a purposeful John Wayne cowboy gait and his hand ready for the draw, ‘Gunman Kalu’, as he is affectionately called, was ready for the rugby shoot out. The Royalists had been warned by  [ Read More ]

Ever since I first went for the school show of Thrithva Ranga, way back when I was in Grade 8 (2004), it has become an annual event in my calendar along with the Bradby Shield. In the Thrithva Ranga held way back in 2004, I can remember there was something to do with army soldiers climbing down from the top of the hall to kidnap the president. Even though I  [ Read More ]

The saga of Asgiriya

Asgiriya was dressed by the late Gamini Dissanayake in 1982 to be the most picturesque international cricket ground in the world. It was also the only Test venue owned by a school. But now, with the Pallakele cricket stadium in place, Asgiriya will continue to foster a multitude of Trinity sports without hindrance, as it has over the years. The Early Years What appeared to be a hillside where Asgiriya  [ Read More ]

Will history repeat itself with grisly accuracy when prop forward Murad Ramzeen’s Trinitians lock horns with No 8 Shehan Pathirana’s yet unconquered Royalists at the Royal Sports complex tomorrow will be the question on the lips of many a rugby connoisseur and historian albeit Royal being favourites to win the game and the Shield with an already eight point lead in the bag a fortnight ago at Bogambara.

In doing so, fifteen spirited Trinitians with youthful  exuberance,  albeit an eight point  deficit  [ Read More ]
