 MG 7795Dilroy Fernando, Director of Agoal International explained that ‘Our prime aim is to help the Rugby Union and other sports as well in order to take every single sport to a different level and there will be more programmes in the future as well on other important topics as well.’

 MG 7812Addressing the gathering Alastair Saverimutto, CEO of the Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union (SLRFU) said ‘What I have seen in Sri Lanka with respects to Rugby, is that it has fantastic support, following and everybody is naturally talented but the areas where Sri Lanka need to professionalize are the coaching techniques, way we operate in supplements etc". "Today we have to understand that strapping is an important part of the sport, and this course is of utmost importance to help the development of rugby as well’ he further added.

Ryan Gibney, an expert on physical strength and conditioning, addressed the gathering by saying ‘It’s not what they do in the gym of the field, it is also what sportsmen and sportswomen do outside training that is important, such as strapping, supplements etc.’

League tourney in November; Sharks join the title frenzy


By Dhammika Heenpella

Sri Lanka's premier rugby league tournament is scheduled to be held in November this year and unlike the previous seasons, the SLRFU has made a decision to hold the tournament two months late so it does not clash with the popular school rugby season.

This year Sri Lanka rugby fans will see the birth of another new contender in Hambantota Sharks and it is speculated that the top rated rugby players in the country would join the new team. 

Early this year, the communication giant Dialog Axiata secured the tournament sponsorship deal for the second successive year and has promised to play a bigger and vital role in developing rugby in Sri Lanka.
