Friendly 7s Tournament

SMU will be participating in a Friendly 7s Quadrangular Tournament this coming Friday together with the AUG 7s squad, ACS (I) and ACJC. The aim of the tournament is to allow the AUG squad to work on their game in preparation for the Asean University Games which will take place in Kuala Lumpur in December. The AUG squad has been training intensively under "The Boss" Lincoln Tan since the end of SUNIG 7s and will be looking to get used to playing as a team and getting their plays right. On the other hand, SMU will be without many of their key players as they are committed to the AUG squad. SMU will be looking to put up a good performance with their new batch of year 1 players such as Nicholas Hwang and Melvin Teo, who have already showed immense promise after making their debut appearances during SUNIG 7s as well as the old guards like Vickneswaran Sellathurai and Matthias Lim.

In addition, ex-National 7s starlet Justin Lum is rumoured to be making his big comeback for SMU at this tournament after suffering from a near career-ending knee injury exactly one year ago. At press time, SMUrugby's treasurer Vickneswaran Sellathurai commented, "Having only made one appearance for SMU so far,the fans are disgruntled with Justin. We need to justify to our fans the amount of money we paid for Justin in the transfer market last year. He has been working hard in the gym and looks ready to play. He has told me personally he will show up for the game. I have faith in him."
