non-coding RNA, cap structure and polyA tail

1. Do all non-coding RNA (I mean non mRNA) does have 5'-end cap structure?

I am asking, because I want amplify full-length ncRNAs based on current protocols...

2. What's about polyA end? - Are there reports that ncRNA does not have polyA tail?

In this case I would use random priming instead of polyT primer.

Thank you,
