  1. Well done SLC for getting this underway and glad to see some good coaches assigned to the teams. Also glad to see Kamindu (and DDS) given a leadership role as we need to groom these players for the future. I just hope this doesn’t fizzle out like so many efforts to run this ‘premier’ tournament in the past. I am not sure if this already a requirement but premier tournament performance should result in national selection – that would add real weight to the event.
