World Rugby together with the Japan Rugby Union have invited two young Sri Lankans to witness the Rugby World cup live in Japan. This wonderful gesture was open to all Asian Rugby playing countries. Each country can send 1 male and 1 female to Japan. The entire cost for the tour is sponsored by World Rugby and Japan Rugby Union.
Radesh Wijeratne Abeysiri from Royal College Colombo and Chamodya Madumali Withanage from Galle were the lucky students to be selected. Radesh plays Rugby at Royal College, and Chamodya is a part of the Ruhunu Province U-18 7's Rugby team.
The two were selected by a panel appointed by Sri Lanka Rugby. The Panel was chaired by Mr. Ajith Abeyratne.
The two Sri Lankans will be in Japan for 3 days, and are accompanied by Col. Dammika Gunasekara (Retd), the Chairman Women’s Rugby Development Committee.
It is a great opportunity for these two young Sri Lankan's to watch their favorite countries and players live, and to be a part of a once in life time opportunity.
Sri Lanka Rugby is thankful to World Rugby and the Japan Rugby Union for the invitation and taking care of all cost, whilst wishing both a wonderful world cup in Japan.
