A 30-17 win by the Anthonians moved them off the last place in their Group. It came at the fourth time of asking but it was well deserved as they showed a greater will to win. The Anthonians eventually won by 30 (2 goals, 2 tries, 2 penalties) to 17 (a goal, 2 tries) against Dharmaraja at Nittawela.
Maduwantha converted the first of two penalties offered to the Anthonians for that early lead. It was short-lived as Rajan skipper Weerasekera’s throw was mishandled on the line and he followed up to touch down.
Referee – Pradeep Fernando
