Kandy Sports Club yesterday pulled out of the second-leg of the Dialog Inter-Club Sevens Rugby Tournament citing injuries and to provide rest for their players ahead of the Asian Games and the Asian Sevens Series.
Kandy SC Secretary Mahesh Weerasinghe speaking to Daily Mirror said: “The club took this decision not to play in the second-leg as our players are involved in too much of rugby and urgently need a rest. They will be once again involved at the Asian Games in Jakarta and Asian Sevens Series in Hong Kong, South Korea and Sri Lanka plus the Mercantile Sevens.”

As a result National sevens players Dhanushka Ranjan, Dhanushka Dyan, Srinath Sooriyabandara, Jason Dissanayake, Lavanga Perera, Gayan Weeraratne, Roshan Weeraratne, Vishwamithra Jayasinghe and Richard Dharmapala would get a break from rugby for the next two weeks.  Meanwhile, CR & FC who pulled out of the first-leg will participate in the second-leg which would be worked off at the Racecourse Grounds next weekend.
