Why we sri lankans are always like this...couple of weeks back we had the rugby 7's in london...major brawl started with pathana & rajans match...and this is in london where we try to showcase the sri lankan rugby talent...which ended up in calling the police & ambulance.

This clearly shows the extent of the moral decay in our society. The so called guardians of the people and the guardians of the country can not even engage in sport peacefully. Some miracle

Rugby is a game that incite violence at the slightest provocation because it is very physical. Tolerance and patients should be part of training in this game.

The forces, who are the maintainers of the law, set a bad example on the rugby field & this is not the first time.

Sports and spirit mixes to unruly out come.
Recently one mobile phone company cricket match went off due to drunk people. Spirit and sports blend in Sri Lanka and it is allowed officially.

Everything in this country is politicized. Today Kandy is playing Navy. Even the referee appointment has been politisized.

All brawls start for a reason. All institutions in this country is politicised unfortunately and frustrations of people comes out in way of brawls at different stages.

I wont condone the fighting. But we need to look beyond the fight to see the reason.

Well declined ruling party vs opposition cricket match is a inspiring. Why not play that game at least once a week for general public.to change attitude and to keep MP's occupied..

Very sad. Should never happen again. Both are considered protectors of the people and should strive to maintain that image.Hope things are resolved soon.

The RFU should consider playing matches at neutral venues when the armed services clubs are involved...
