In an attempt to highlight the prestigious history and years of tradition within the Sri Lanka’s schools rugby community, ThePapare.com compiled and published this list of former champions in the schools rugby league some time ago. Unfortunately, due to some lackluster recordkeeping we have no means to corroborate the details above. As a result, we are now venturing into citizen journalism as we turn to our passionate fans to help us confirm the list so as to give the heroes on whose backs Sri Lanka schools rugby was built, the respect they have rightfully earned.
