The former Isipathanian and CR&FC fly-half, Niroshan Fernando has been given the duties of leading the Park club in the upcoming Dialog Rugby League.
Fernando is an experienced campaigner and has had a lot of success in his rugby career. After representing Isipathana College from 2004 to 2009 Fernando went on to join CR & FC in 2010.
But, after just playing for one season he switched to Havelock Sports Club in 2012 and has pledged his alliance to the Park Club ever since. Later that year, Niroshan represented the National Team and has been a regular member of the Tuskers in the XVs, donning the #10 jersey on many occasions.
Havelock SC has a long history in rugby, dominating the game at one point and producing some top-notch players. This year, strengthened by experienced players and with the inclusion of some raw schoolboy talent – the Park Club will hope to regain past glory.
As this will be Fernando’s first stint as captain, he will surely look forward to give a better performance and push his players to put Havelock SC back on top to be definite title contenders.
