Our rugby team first met SOKSEK during the U-14 North Zone Inter SBP Sports Carnival in 1991 in Perlis. To cut a long story short, we lost the the game handsomely to them. They were good.
But it was not memorable because we lost. It was memorable because the game witnessed the first of many dirty tactics and techniques deployed by us in due course of our koleq's sporting career. :)
SOKSEK had many good players, one of the most oustanding being its open side winger known as Din. Din was big for a 14 year old and he ran through everything that blocked his way, not unlike Jonah Lomu during the 1995 World Cup. Standing opposite him was Tkid.
Everybody was really clueless on how to stop this human juggernaut. So we basically left things to chance and fate. Little did we know that Tkid had an ingenious plan. But Tkid kept it close to his chest. Nobody knew, not even Kadaque, the captain.
We only came to know of his plans halfway thorugh the game when a fuming Din shouted at the top of his lungs in the course of him running for another try, "HARAM JADAH - HANGPA MAIN TAGHIK TELOQQQQ!!!!"
Tkid never owned up to the act but he did not deny it either. Not until recently.
Tkid broke his silence after all these years. Below is his confession :
Memang aku tarik teloq Din tu ha...sampai 3 orang tackle tak jatuh2...
aku pun tarik dan pulas baru dia berhenti berlari..
