Zahira College Colombo is all set for their second year in A Division rugby after reclaiming qualification standards to the top division in fourteen years.
The side came out with a spirited performance last year and are on course for another power-packed display this time around.
This year’s outfit will be led by Muhammar Deen who was tighthead prop last year. Minhaj Samsudeen will work as his deputy. In comparison to 2017, this year’s squad is a mix of talented newcomers and experienced players. Shamly Nawas will remain in charge this season.
He will look to get the best out of the boys unlike some of the performances last season. Early preparations are underway and the boys in good spirit already.
Thus far, Zahira College has won four league titles and produced a number of outstanding ruggerites like Hisham Abdeen, Mohammed Mushtaq, and Tony Amit.
