It was a repeat performance of the Nippon Paint Rugby League tournament by Police SC against CH & FC in their first Plate Championship encounter as they recorded an easy 41-26 win in the match played at the Racecourse ground in Reid Avenue today. This was in contrast to the close 27-22 win achieved in the league encounter played at the same venue.

However, the first half was a closely contested affair, with the score changing between the two teams at 19 each before Police SC opened up in the second half. The Cops accumulated their points through four goals, two tries, and a penalty, compared to the three goals and a try scored by CH.

The first half saw Police SC start off with a bang by scoring three tries within the space of 13 minutes through Yomal Suranga, Primesh Dhanushka, and skipper Nisal Samadi, and with Yohan Peiris converting two of those, they took an early 19-0 lead.

But, undeterred, CH responded with two quick tries from skipper Prasath Madusanka, followed by a third through Shehan Silva. Two of these were converted by CH to level the scores at 19 each before the short whistle was blown.

Following the restart, Police SC went on a rampage, successfully planting three tries through Mohamed Faumy, Janith Chanaka, and Akash Madusanka. With Peiris booting over two conversions and a penalty, they took control and led 41-19. In the dying stages of the game, Dushmantha Priyadharshana went over for a try, but it was nowhere near becoming a threat or preventing Police SC from chalking up an easy win and beginning their Plate Championship on a winning note.
