The Secretary and Treasurer of the Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Football Association (SLSRFA) were yesterday restrained by the District Court of Colombo from holding the 2013 Schools Rugby tournament without allowing the players of Vidyartha College Kandy participating in group "1" – category "A" matches for the year 2013.

Additional District Judge Pradeep Jayathilaka restrained the Secretary of the Association – the Sports Master of Prince of Wales College Moratuwa – Susantha Mendis and the Treasurer of the Association – the Sports Master of St. Benedict's College Kotahena – N. A. Wettewa from holding the Schools Rugby Tournament for the year 2013.

Judge Pradeep Jayathilake made this Order on the Secretary and the Treasurer of the SLSRFA upon considering submissions of Senior Counsel Sunil Abeyratne who appeared on behalf of thirty petitioners including Thalwatte Dhanushka Madushan of Vidyartha College Kandy.

The petitioners alleged that the School Rugby Association is planning to hold the 2013 Schools Rugby Tournament without allowing the petitioners of Vidyartha College Kandy to participate in group "1" category "A" in the year 2013.

The petitioners allege that not allowing Vidyartha to participate in 1- A group is a violation of the constitution of the SLSRFA.

The Counsel moved to issue a permanent injunction restraining the concerned defendants from holding the 2013 School Rugby Tournament without allowing the petitioners to take part in group "1"- "A" category matches in 2013.

The petitioners cited 15 defendants including the Minister of Sports. The Judge while restraining the Secretary and the Treasurer of the SLSRFA who were not present in court issued notice of injunction on them and notice to appear in Court for the other thirteen defendants.
