Exciting times for Sri Lankan rugby

Sri Lanka's rugby players are enjoying the rising popularity of the sport, ahead of Asian Five Nations qualification.

    The climax to Rugby's Six Nations took place on Saturday.

    But the popularity of the sport spreads much further than just the countries playing.

    Later this month, Sri Lanka will try and qualify for the Asian Five Nations championship.
