Navy Sports Club and Air Force Sports Club will look to register their first win this season when they battle it out in their Dialog Inter-Club League Rugby Tournament fixture at Welisara today.


Navy SC suffered their fourth successive defeat in their previous outing when they lost to CH and FC 21-23 after a close contest at the Racecourse Grounds.
They will once again bank on the place kicking of Chathura Seneviratne who had a very good last match against CH and FC.


However, the Navy SC pack which has been their strength for many seasons has not been as lethal as it used to be mainly due to the absence of some key players. 
Meanwhile, Air Force SC have made few changes as number eight Dinesh Weerarathne and full back Amitha Silva are set to make their debut this season while  pushing Ramzan Amith, Manuka Perera and Jason Karunarathne to the bench.


The Air Force SC pack will be spearheaded by Captain Ranuka Medagedara who will no doubt use all his experience in an attempt to get the better of the opposition.


The Airmen lost to Havelock SC 11-16 in their previous game at Ratmalana.
