Kandy Sports Club took another step towards retaining the Dialog ‘A’ division league title when they thrashed CR & FC by 50 points (8 tries, 5 conversions) to 15 (2 tries, 1 conversion, 1 penalty) in a second round match played at Nitawella yesterday. At halt time Kandy led 21-3.

CR made a strong start but they ultimately fell short as Kandy ran in eight tries to win. Kandy started the game at full throttle, attacking from deep and putting pressure on the CR defence.

Kandy completely dominated the proceedings as they made a perfect start. After that it was all one-way traffic as they put the Red shirts to the sword. Kandy continued their perfect display of passing, tackling and kicking and got the better of their rivals with some well taken tries.

For CR the match wasn’t that great - too many handling errors, and some shocking kicking during the first half that resulted in their loss. For Kandy the tries were scored by Richard Dharmapala two, and one each from T. Chathuranga, Danushka Ranjan, U. Jayasooriya, Jayson Dissanayake, Nigel Ratwatte and Srinath Suriyabandara. Five of the tries were goaled by Nigel Ratwatte. For CR Reeza Rafaideen and C. Chamara scored the tries with Tarindu Ratwatte putting over a conversion and Reeza Rafaideen the penalty.
