As we near the be all or end all of SMURugby’s ambitious and well fought foray into the Tri-University Rugby Championships 2008, we would like to take a moment to remember the people who have fought alongside us to get us to where we are now. You might have seen them before. On the sidelines or on the field, or working behind the scenes, the people whose hearts and hopes stood with us throughout the ups and downs of this tournament.

Throughout this tournament these were the people who gave our team depth and options. Whether supporting us side by side on the field and making sure we always had someone to count on, or even off the field providing us with the moral and physical support we needed to keep the team going. Be it tactical changes and a fresh set of legs in the midst of the heat of a game, water, videos, linesmen or even just the crucial words of encouragement to keep us going. You know who you are. When the chips were down, each and every single one of you were the people who were there and who mattered most.
The 07-08 Exco and Coach
When tough calls had to be made on or off the field, these were the people we relied on. Their experience and wisdom kept the team together and kept us focused on the tasks at hand. They gave us a goal and a purpose and showed us what we had to do and how to do it. And more often than not, these were the people who went out and got it done for us.
We would like to extend our gratitude to Andrew, Roy, and the rest of OSL who have supported us through their guidance, encouragement and even for the Wednesday gym sessions. Thank you for your faith and for sticking with us this far.
Our WAGS, Loyal Fans, and Ever Faithful Supporters
You who have continued to read this blog and supported us through the wins, the one unfortunate loss, and who have offered your words of encouragement and humour on our tagboard. We thank you for your ardent support; we have never needed it more than now.
SMU vs NUS. The chips are down and we are going all in.
Be there with us one more time.
