Cut the testing, Datuk.......

Granted, it was a friendly match. But a defeat is a defeat, our first on home soil since 2009, and we need to act.

The 2-0 loss against Vietnam at the Bukit Jalil Stadium was one that we needed - a wake-up call to those aspiring to break into the first team.

Nothing drastic is needed as there is no need to push the panic button as national coach K. Rajagobal mentioned after the loss.

But one is for sure, we have to stop the experimenting. The AFF Suzuki Cup is just a couple of months away and it's time to put out our finest players together in the coming preparation matches.

It may just be my two cents worth opinion or it may just be what Rajagobal has to do.

Here's our future athletes, Singapore.

Singapore may, in say 8-10 years, have better Badminton players than us.

It's not that they have en excellent development programmes or more talented youngsters, but because the Republic are offering Malaysia's top Under-12 players education scholarships and a place in the Singapore Sports School.

This was revealed by in Cradle Snatcher several days ago.

Ethical or not, is a different matter. But what can we do to stop this?

BA of Malaysia admitted that they are powerless in stopping this as Singapore has the right to give such offers.

The national body's secretary Ng Chin Chai conceded that BAM need to work with Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) in providing a better package for the young talents - maybe even a better education programme (if necessary) and more high quality coaches.

However, BJSS must change their ways. They have turned down potential talent in the past before.Should Malaysia lose more young talent, this could be a lesson for being picky.
