Tribute to our injured talisman - Stuart

It is with great sadness and regret that we report that our ex-president and talisman, Stuart Ho is out for the rest of the current 15s season. During the friendly match against ACJC on the 11th of July, crowd-favourite Stuart was severely injured after coming on as a substitute. After making one of his typical bursts down the wing, Stuart offloaded the ball to Ian Gan in the midst of a tackle and suffered a clean break of his ankle. Coincidentally, in the same sequence Ian sprained his ankle in a tackle.

Stuart has been one of the leaders and stars of this SMU Rugby team. Always a warrior , Stuart has always been at the forefront of the action, taking and making hits for the team. Ronald Cher, vice-president, eyes red from the tears, had this to say, " Stuart is a valued member in the team. more importantly he has been a great friend to all of us. Someone that we can rely on, from the field to school to getting sloshed. Most notably, is his leadership as president in championing the SUNIG 7's last year. He has been a personal friend who extends any help I ask of him. Stuart, I wish you all the best in your recovery."

On behalf of everyone in the team and all your supporters, we wish you a quick and complete recovery and hope to see you back at your explosive best in no time.
