The polo teams competing in the 2017 SEA Games are merely meeting the necessary conditions set forth by the games committee. There are some that have come with lower handicap thus making it easy to be defeated. I challenge the SEA Games polo team to come to Johor and show your fangs since news of your greatness supersedes you. Today they played against Singapore. When the team was already winning, he came on and asked the performing player to pretend to be injured. So there’s a photo of him in the team to be featured in the print media and spread the propaganda to cheat people as if he was victorious and reliable.
I’d like to extend the invitation to the the Youth and Sports Minister and hopefully he won’t disappoint the requests of the people to see your team defeat the Johor team. I will send 2 of my sons and 2 of our horse trainers or perhaps myself, as I believe I still have what it takes. Should my team lose, I will admit that the SEA Games team are represented by the best there is.
Polo in Johor did not start yesterday. Polo was first played and introduced in Johor since 1884. When I was the Crown Prince, I was already playing around the world and even played in the World Cup. Hence, the SEA Games is almost insignificant in comparison. If you want a more competitive match, do come to Johor.
I would like to invite all Malaysians to come and watch as well as enjoy the match between the SEA Games team and the Johor Team.
