by Hafiz Marikar in Kandy
From this year, the Dharmaraja-Kingswood rugby match clash for the William Weerasinghe trophy, will take place on June 14 at Nittawela. Mrs. Weerasinghe is expected to hand over the trophy to the winners.

In appreciation of the services rendered by William Weerasinghe to the Rajans and Kandy rugger, the newly formed Rugby Football Association of the Old Rajans has decided to play this match for the William Weerasinghe trophy.

William Weerasinghe was well known in the sports field. He started with Kandy RFC, where he was the team manager for several years, and after the amalgamation with Kandy SC he gave off his best for this club as the team manager, committee member and vice president. He did his best for Rajans rugby too.

He was also involved in football, hockey, body building and cricket. During his days he was a top class body builder and muscle dancer.
