LCW needs more quality opposition within the MAS MS rank, the same that CHN is currently having. Only with good, consistent challenge from his peers can he measure his abilities and be 'pressured' to improve or lose his place. I do not see Hafiz, Roslin, Kuan BH etc to be on the same level as he is. The only time he could do something about his own development is during tourneys when faced up against equal-leveled competitors whom are more than capable of ending his challenge. By then, with added time to accommodate to a different rival (they don't sit down and drink tea while he practices), it may just be too late. LD have BCL, CJ, CY right on his shadows. BCL have to deal with both LD and the two Chens. The two Chens know their chances are limited but can improve well from sparring with the country's top two. I can see the MAS MDs to continue improving with so many pairs ready to usurp KKK/TBH's position and the latter knows that Rexy doesn't care about their names, just performance. Haven't heard of so much emphasis placed on junior players until Rexy came - before that it's always about TCF/LWW. The problem lies within, rather than without. Then, how to solve this problem? Unfortunately I have no idea but there is an urgent need to increase the quality of recruits to the national stable. One championship-level player is never enough. He needs to be on his toes continuously. Stressful? If he can't handle it, someone will eventually take his place. This is what differentiates between a good player and a very good one.
