Lakith Perera, a former Navy SC player, is someone the team will rely on as he uses his experience from past games to take this young and inexperienced CH & FC team towards respectability this season.
Inzam Irfan, the Prop forward standing at 6 feet tall and weighing in at 120kgs, will look to make his weight tell and make an impact for CH this season. His senior mate Mohamed Rifkhan, also another loose forward, can make the switch to the front row if necessary.
Ashroff Muzmi, who captained D.S. Senanayake College, was a lonely warrior in the concluded school season for the Dons. CH also have few school leavers, all fighting for a place: Vishwa Deneth (Thurstan), Udara Lakshan (Dudley Senanayake), Akash Weerakoon (St. Johns’ Nugegoda), Dilshan Fonseka (St. Peters’).
