Presidents of Asia Rugby and Sri Lanka Olympic Committee meet

After the suspension of Sri Lanka Rugby by Asia Rugby in April this year, Asia Rugby President Qais Al Dhalai met Sri Lanka Olympic Committee President Suresh Subramaniam on 20th May, 2022 in Dubai, to extend support to the country’s players and athletes.

On the occasion, Subramaniam commented: “I am honored to meet the President, who gave his fullest assurance to the committee that the sport is higher than individuals. After our meeting with the President, it is certain that the fraternity is supporting Sri Lanka Rugby and its athletes in this critical juncture, especially in its participation at the Commonwealth Games (men and women) in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Asia Rugby is currently awaiting the official verdict from the court, and the organization is of the opinion that athletes must not suffer as a result of matters concerning governance affairs.
