Quenta, commonly known to his friends[according to whom?] as 'Q,' went to school at Trinity College, Kandy where he played rugby as a centre three-quarter between 1953 and 1954 under the guidance of Dharmasiri Madugalle and Lucky Vitharana.[citation needed] By 1954, he was the Captain of the Hockey team and was also an accomplished hurdler.[2] Though an old boy of Trinity, 'Quenta', went on to coach S. Thomas for number of years and even his alma-mater with success. Once he coached the Thomians who registered 43 wins in-a-row,[citation needed] coached Trinity to win the Bradby Shield on five occasions.[citation needed] He was a member of the staff at both institutions. Quenta was a former President of Havelock as well as a coach, he was one of the best[according to whom?] having studied the strengths and weaknesses of every opposing side.[citation needed] He also served the SLRFU.[3]

Club rugby[edit]
Israel represented the Havelock Sports Club from 1958 to 1965 and was a member of the 1961 Clifford Cup winning team. Although he did not represent Sri Lanka, he was a member of the All Ceylon pool and squad[4] which he went on to coach to victory on many occasions.[when?] He held positions of Honorary Secretary, Entertainment Secretary, and President of the club.[citation needed]

He is most widely known as the 1st XV coach at S. Thomas' College, Mount Lavinia,[5] who registered 43 wins in a row.[3][6][7] One of his protégés was Sri Lankan player Michael Jayasekera, described by Havelocks Rugby Club coach Gamini Fernando as "being gift-wrapped and delivered to his club by Quentin Israel".[8] Jayasekera went on to become the Chairman of the Board of Selectors. Another protégé was Sri Lankan player PL Munasinghe. Jayasekera and Munasinghe both played in 1975 and 1976 and were later described as the best Thomian team, by sports journalist Sharm de Alwis.[9]

He later coached Trinity College, which won the Bradby Shield on five occasions.[citation needed]

He also served the Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union (SLRFU), besides being the coach of the national under 19 side,[when?] and taking over coaching of Galle Rugby Football Club after retiring from Trinity College.[10]

Israel taught Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics, and is known for his emphasis on education despite his enthusiasm for Rugby.[11] He also coached a 2nd XI Cricket team at S Thomas College, Mt Lavinia.[12] Additionally, he served as a House Master and Head Master of the Upper School, where he had the reputation of being a strict disciplinarian.[13][14]

Junior School Challenge Cups (donated by Herbert Lakshman Fernando) are awarded to the Most Promising Student and the Best All-round Sportsman of the Year in Trinity College in his memory.[15] The Toronto Chapter of the St Thomas College's Old Boys Association initiated a Rugby 7-a-side tournament, to be played for the Quentin Israel Memorial Trophy.[16]
