Warriors Players and Supporters:
Warriors have been dealt another injury blow ahead of the Manila Cup with news that Ben “Eggs” Simpson will miss the next six weeks with a ligament tear in his knee; The President of the Warriors confirmed the injury today ahead of the club's main training session this Saturday at Pedang Merbok.
This compounds the Warriors injury woes and preparation for the Manila Cup Title defense with Key Midfielders Clint Watts, Adam Kaminski and Ruckman Josh Welsh also sustained injuries during the weekends defeat by the Singapore Wombats and draw with the Cambodian Eagles.
With the emphasis at training this week focusing on The Warriors conceding losses in the past three weeks, it is not just an issue for the back six the whole team needed to lift their defensive efforts. This will be reflected on the track Saturday and focus will be on full ground defense that will be the difference between winning and losing games in the future.
Our primary focus is for the team to sticking together over the next 3 weeks and training hard, it’s about the team working together as one and really pushing that.
JUST like a counterpunching boxer the Warriors need to absorb the pressure before landing a few blows of their own against the opposition in Manila.
All Players & Supporters ensure you make your way down to training this weekend and get onboard for our build up to the title defense of the Manila Cup.
*Note* If you are injured please come down and support, turn a snagger and crack a tiger.
