Apr. 21 (Daily Mirror) - St. Peter’s College stamped their class when they beat Royal College 10-5 in the Dialog Schools Rugby Sevens 2024 final, which was worked off at the Royal Sports Complex today.

At the short break, it was the lads from Bambalapitiya who led 10-5.

Royal scored first, but the boys from Bambalapitiya replied with two tries. Towards the last minute of the game, Royal almost scored but was pushed to touch by the Peterites.

Referee: Raveen Alexander

This was the second Sevens win this year for the Peterite outfit, after accounting for the Zahira Sevens earlier. Emith Jayaweera of St. Peter’s was adjourned Best Player of the Tournament.
