    • The belief has often been expressed that the standard of "Rugger" in the island compares favourably with that of any ordinary English county. [...] In J. E. Biddell, [...], F. H. Tatham, W. Moir, and others [...] the island still has a fine lot of players, and the game bids fair to continue to arouse the the interest it always has done. It is not a game which suits the Ceylonese, who lack the necessary "vim" and weight; but it has been sportingly taken up by them. [Twentieth Century Impressions of Ceylon, Arnold Wright, London, 1909].
