SMU Rugby has been extremely busy this pre season and we are proud to unveil our players for the future.
BLANDON 'The Hulk' TAN
A gifted player, Blandon has played at Centre and Full Back. He is also well known for his powerful and accurate boot. Standing at a strapping 1.85M, a reserved Blandon refuses to divulge his weight, instead blushing and insisting on playing guessing games. When asked about his views to SMU Rugby's future, Blandon had this to say "I believe in our team's ability and am confident of bringing past glory back to our team but we also need to train even harder."(We will be bringing you an exclusive interview of Blandon as soon as his busy schedule clears up.)
Jesse 'The Belly' Quek
Jesse Quek, signed from Saints, is a player with multiple abilities, able to play at Fly-Half, Centre and Hooker. Known for his sniping runs and stepping, Jesse has become an instant darling with SMU Rugby fans. Also known for his incredible ball handling skills, Jesse caused an uproar during the recent SRU 7s tournament when he was able to catch the ball with his belly. With talent like that SMU Rugby is hard pressed to find excuses. When asked about his first experiences in school, Jesse in his usual eloquent manner commented, "School sucks!". We do hope that Finance Director Aldric Chew will be able to have a positive influence on the youngster.
Ronald 'The Beast' Cher
SMU Rugby is proud to announce that we have managed to acquire this highly sought-after player. Ronald plays as a prop and his thunderous runs and stepping abilities have made him one of the upcoming stars of today. Rumour also has it that Ronald was in the past a centre but after several years of hard work, he has been elevated to the position of Prop. (Ronald refuses to deny or affirm the rumour). Asked what aims he has for the upcoming SUniG 7s Ronald said "We must win this. I will always give my 110% and i expect the sam from every one of my teammates!" Inspirational words from Ronald have time and again lifted the team spirits.
When asked for his expectations of the trio, President Stuart Ho was gushing, "With this players we can build an extremely potent squad and i am confident of our teams abilities. I will nurture them with my own capable 2 hands and mould them into players who can surpass my own abilities!" SMU Rugby thanks Stuart for the hard work he put into acquiring these top notch players.
