Perhaps it would not be ideal to compare this with the 20 Premier League titles Manchester United have won, obviously in a different sport played at the highest level. However, one cannot ignore the manner in which both these teams have gone about their business dominating sides. They have been so good for so long that people expect them to win pretty much every match, and every time they lose, they make headlines the following day.

The Pathanians had done their homework and had the Royalists struggling for survival, racing to a comfortable 19 points to 7 lead at the breather and they added a further 28 points in the second half, as opposed to the solitary try scored by the latter.

But Isipathana have stated they requested only to change the venue and not the date. What they point out is, the Sri Lanka
