As we attempt to steer away from all the "not so pleasant" issues that SMUrugby has had to endure for the past week or so. This week we kick off with an unlikely source, Desmond Wee. The National 7s Player, who is currently away in Spain for exchange, came forward to share his words of wisdom and witt, mailing the rest of the team, after actually requesting to be removed from the mailing list, as he was experiencing numerous nonsensical, "waste of space" spams from various players.
On the part of SMUrugby, it was good to hear the player not only keeping in touch with the current affairs of the team, but also pledging to see out his career with the City Boys. His mail came at a timely moment and we hope that perhaps some of 'us' could learn a thing or two from the man they call "the Weezer".
Hola from Madrid,
I guess there has been somewhat of a radio silence from the guys on exchange, but on behalf of everyone, Lionel Kong, Weiming and the Ah Neh(sorry if i left anyone out), congratulations on the win in the SUNIG 7's and keep up the good work. Also, hope everyone recovers from their injuries soon, especially Sherman, Justin Lum and Ben Teong (yes, i saw the interview).
Please listen to your president/captain (Sherman and DMC) and give him some respect and try to achieve at least a decent level of attendance. And the new guys, be nice and patient with uncle Weinurn. He's a bit stubborn and hard of hearing but he is really a sweetheart.
Also just wanna let you guys know that i'm still alive and that i miss training/playing hard with you guys in Singapore. Though the excessing smoking/drinking/(no sex yet) has taken its toll on my weary body of late, i promise that(with some work) i will be back to complete my academic and rugby career in SMU come January.
I've been following the events unfolding back home in Singapore and it is a shame that it has to come to this(i frankly don't know what it has come to, i'm just saying it). But in these times of upheaval and uncertainty, i leave you with this quote:

Now...You GOT to love this guy. Thanks Dezzo, we hope that your wise words will not fall on deaf ears. Hola-ing back from us here in Singapore.
