    i dont think mr michael wong was in the selection committee at all..
    even if he was, im sure he will not choose his own hc players over others…
    please be careful bout how you are potraying him….
    its not fair to him and the players in the comb sch now…
    there must be a reason why these players are chosen…
    looking only at individual skills and importance to their sch team is really shallow…

    i think we should not blame the players in the team- instead blame the ppl selecting i mean Mike Wong teacher i/c of HCI was in the selection commitee

    i mean with the dominance of HCI in the A boys i can understand why they have so many HCI players – but HOCK SENG!!!!!!!! i think the VJC center played a lot better then him.

    first point how can teachers of JCs pick the combined school teams – its just wrong!!! have they not heard of CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    its not fair that HCI has so many gals in the Combined school team – I felt that RJC was on par but they have 2 whilst HCI have 5

    unlike the B boys they have trials b4 the combined schools teams are formed – but in the A boys, the teams are chosen by the AJC, HCI AND SAJC (Coach)

    No desrespct to these teachers but they should not be the one doing the selection cos they have other interests at heart, combine schools team places should be given to the desreving players who played well in the A boys and NOT guys with PAST credentials

    Anyway i think that the combined schools team should have the 4 boys from HCI (NOT HOCK SENG – he can barley do a lay up )

    #14 and the center of AJC

    PG, Marcus, and Center of VJC

    2 guards and center from TJC

    either no 6 from RJC or NO 7 from NJC or No 8 from IJC

    people get chosen for a reason. even if some others are good or even better, im sure they agree that they got other platforms to perform ma. people shld give and take. to criticise is so narrow-minded.

    just hope the combined sch team the best in defending the milo cup! (:

    “bernard is definitely more skillful than some other ppl in the combined school
    so pls dont doubt him?” haha. who, can name a few since you said some? i can easily find some others who are better than him. wanxin, zhihao, zhishu. and if you wanna compared with people playing his position, kenneth, guan jie, even ajc number 11 also better than him.

    of all, i think Heng Hock Sing from HCI is the best player. he didnt play much for his school but still, he make it to the team.
