Seems that two of our national hockey players who were participating in the Australian Hockey League have been told to get work permits if they want to continue representing their Australian club.

Mohd Shukri Mutalib and Faisal Saari have been told that they need to secure work permits, and this raises the question if they had violated the terms of their visa in the first place when they left to play in the Aussie league in May.

And who should be held responsible for the violation? If arrangements of attachment were done by out officials, then they should own up for we have officials fast to take credit for the attachment program so why not be quick to claim liability now.

On the same note I have a question I would like to pose to National Coach Tai Beng Hai - how come it's ok for the duo to skip national camp to play in that league but when it comes to out MHL Beng Hai claims he does not want disruptions to his training program?

And mind you these players missed the Europe Tour as well.

So the clubs have to cater for you Beng Hai while you cater for the overseas market?

Or will you be bold enough to say that the MHL has no standard?
