Rugby is a fast paced, hard hitting and exciting game in which the objective is to carry or kick the ball towards the opposing team’s goal line and score points by grounding the ball. The game starts with a kickoff and the gentlemen are ready to take the field.
With the beginning of Inter University Games, the sport is increasing its popularity among university students and the spectators are thrilled and are looking forward to witness a great game of rugby. The day our lions eagerly anticipated has finally arrived and our lions of Japura are ready for the best game in their history.
The team has performed well so far. They became runners-up in the annual Leaders’ Trophy Tournament which was organized by General Sir John Kotelawala Defense University by showing tremendous performance beating University of Kelaniya, CINEC, Sri Lanka Military Academy and KDU B teams. Our team was also able to secure 4th place at the SLUG in 2016. Coming off an extremely positive result last year, our lions are going to be doing everything they can to secure the top spot in the tournament.
This time, the team will be led by Uwin Ariyarathne who has made his team and alma mater proud by becoming the top try scorer of the entire season. Sulakshana Hettiarachchi and Lakal Ruhunage are the two vice captains who are proud to be leading team J’pura at the upcoming Inter University Games. Coach of the team Mr Thejan Madhushanka has always been a driving force behind the success of the team.
The first match of the tournament is scheduled against Southeastern University on 9th of July at University of Peradeniya grounds from 3.00 p.m. onwards.
We at J’pura Flames bring in best wishes for the team for a great game tomorrow and after until they reach their goal of going to the top.J’pura Lions may you get the strength and the courage to make Mother J’pura proud!
