he Defence Services XV took the President Mahinda Rajapaksa Trophy defeating a Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union XV by 39 points (5 tries, 2 goals) to 10 (1 goal and a penalty) in the second encounter at the Army Ground Galle Face yesterday.
It was a combined team effort by the services team who played cohesively to plant seven tries as the SLRFU XV lacked the same quality of rugby displayed by the Defence Services XV. The SLRFU team was captained by scrum half Zulki Hameed and the Defence Services skippered by R N Meepage. The Services XV as usual indulged themselves in some hard tackling while giving a good display in attack and defence.
