Reigning Champions Kandy Sports Club made a statement of intent by thrashing Sri Lanka Airforce Sports Club 26-08 in their first match of the 2019/2020 Inter-Club Rugby League season in Nittawela this evening.

Kandy-led by Nigel Ratwatte crossed over three times in the first half, to lead 19-03 at lemons.

The superior Kandy backline piled on the pressure in the second half before their boisterous supporters however could not convert it to points.

The home team scored only a solitary in the second half which helped them secure the all important bonus point.

Abishek Fernando touched down for the Airmen but could not clinch the losing bonus point.

After the end of the first week’s proceedings, Havelocks Sports Club top the Points Table with six ahead of Kandy SC and CR & FC.

Navy SC and Sri Lanka Airforce SC are rooted at the bottom of the table.
