“St. Joseph’s College will be gunning down the throats of Isipathana College to win their first ever major trophy, whilst the Green Machine will be aiming to make it knockout trophy number eight as the two teams lock horns in the final this weekend.
Just a few years on from fighting for their lives in the top division, St. Joseph’s have been transformed into an entertaining and competitive side in the schools’ league. Their dazzling back line of Chatura Seneviratne, Gemunu Chethiya, Sameesha Viranga and Vinul Fernando have been the guiding force for the Joes this season.
