I would like to congratulate all the teams competing in the league especially to the Wolfpacks , KWRC, KRFC and the improving GB13 Skulls.
Marzuki, who felt grateful to Allah for the success, said the combination of young players and experienced players made WORC this year more solid.
“Great management is also one big factor we can win the league. All players gave their 100 per cent commitment during the matches. After each match we did a post-mortem to identify the weaknesses and it was a great thing we did during the matches. So, we can improve it during training sessions.
“The spirit to be champion was seen since the fi rst match versus Wolfpack when we managed to hold them 10-10 although they had better players with a combination of some of the experienced players and a player from Fiji,” added Mahadzir.
Meanwhile, WORC president Mohd Nafri Abdul Rahman thanked the players and officials for their great commitment and the supporters who are always with the team.
“All the hard work during the training were rewarded with the win. Hopefully next year we can defend the Cup.
“It was no easy job to win the league. Thank God we manage to overcome all the circumstances and we made it. Respect yourself, respect your teammates, respect your coach, respect your opponents and respect the game will lead you to people will respect you more. Proud to be together!,” he added.
Nafri also advised the team to focus on representing Kuching in the President Cup.
“I would also like to thank the sponsors Cergas Asli Sdn Bhd, Datuk Fadillah Yusof and Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman,” he said.
