Thilina boots Navy to nerve-wracking win


Navy’s full back Thilina Weerasinghe, the season’s highest point scorer, must surely have been the toast of the sailors after last evening’s cliff-hanger against the Havies. Single-handedly (if you will pardon the faux pas) he contributed 13 points to the Navy as they beat the Havelocks by 28 points (two goals, a try and three penalties) to 26 (three goals and a try) at the Race Course.

Play meandered a bit at the start with both teams striving for that first score and early advantage. But it was the Park Club that scored first through hooker Azmir Fajudeen, when the Havies employed the driving maul. Mubarak was spot on (7-0).

It didn’t take long for Charith Silva (who by the way had a great game) to equalize. Thilina Weerasingha arrowed the ball through (7-7)
