Kandy Sports Club have a task at hand but known for their winning pedigree, Kandy are a force to be reckoned with.

Will the wounded Kandy outfit be able to bounce back from their week 7 defeat?

Havelock SC v CR & FC at Havelock Park on the 2nd of February

Havelock Sports Club take on CR & FC as the two teams lock horns for the Matthysz Trophy. The first leg was won by CR 25-10 at Longdon Place, and now the attention shifts to Havelock Park in what promises to be a crucial game for CR as much for Havelocks.

The equation is straightforward for CR & FC as they know that 3 wins during the Cup Segment will all but secure them their first title in 1998.

Havelocks will be determined to stop them from achieving this feat, as much as winning the Matthysz Trophy will be a battle within the war.

CH & FC vs Kandy SC at the Racecourse on the 3rd of February

CH & FC have a prime opportunity to dismantle Kandy. However, the wounded Holders come down to Colombo, raring to go!

A Champion outfit always manages to bounce back after a defeat, and it will be interesting to see how a wounded and weakened Kandy outfit bounces back.

CH & FC are poised to be in a reasonable frame of mind to get over the line, and with Sanath Martis at the helm, the experienced campaigner will surely know how to get under the skin of an anguished opponent.

Kandy is still the favourite, but if CH are able to get over the line, they will no doubt be doing fellow rivals CR a massive favour.
