According to the rankings, the top 4 teams will compete in the Cup competition draw for two more weeks while the bottom tier will see the bottom 4 contesting in the Plate draw.

Will CH & FC be able to break Kandy at Nittawela this weekend?

The brainchild of tournament director Rizly Ilyas, this year’s league will have two Super Weekends and the team with the most amount of points at the end of them will be adjudged as Dialog Rugby League champions.

Taking a look at the current draw, it will be very important that both Kandy and Havelock SC win both of their games if each of them have any intention of winning the title.

However, winning both games could also be insufficient for the defending champions with the Park Club in the lead by 3 points.

The job is not done for Havelock SC

The fixtures for the 1st Super Weekend will be as follows:

  • 23rd February – Army SC v Air Force SC – Welisara at 4.00 p.m.
  • 23rd February – Havelock SC v CR & FC – Havelock at 4.00 p.m.
