Nuwan Hettiaarachchi, who was convicted of deserting the ranks, when he fled from the Navy. Hettiaarachchi deserted because his hometown rugby club, the Kandy Sports Club, was to have a "crucial rugger" with Navy Sports Club at Nittawela on Saturday. Somehow, the Navy noticed that the "dashing three-wing quarter" was there! In Hettiaarachchi's defense, there appears to be some dispute as to which club holds his current contract See story here.and here.
