The new boys in the top division, Zahira College Maradana will take on Wesley College on Friday at Longdon Place from 4pm onwards. Wesley with mixed emotions after the ugly quarrel over Trinity College will look to turn the season around with quality rugby.
They’ve done comparatively well after the loss against Trinity. They’ve managed to outclass Prince of Wales, Science College and S.Thomas’ College Mt. Lavinia to regain the all-important Sir. Oliver Goonatilake shield. Hence, they’ll look to extend their glory days with a win against the boys from Maradana.
Alternatively, Zahira College has done quite well despite losing a couple of close games against top opponents. They were mighty close against S.Thomas’ and Trinity.
Coming into this game, Zahira will take a lot of confidence from their dominant win over Prince of Wales in the weekend.
Players to watch out
For Wesley College, brothers Avishka and Avantha Lee’s performance will remain key as they’ve done quite well in the season so far. After the late try against S. Thomas’ Murshid Zubair will also be in the spotlight. Taariq Jurangpathy has the potential to turn things around as well.
Zaid Singhawansa and Yuzraan Lantra make an excellent combination for Zahira College. Thus far, they’ve been absolutely impressive. Skipper Azhar Irfan is another bright prospect for Zahira.
The last time these two teams met, Wesley clinched a narrow win over Zahira 32-22 after a closely contested first half.
