Warriors Reignite SLeague Title Race

Another year and the SLeague fails to disappoint. For so long it seemed the title was DPMM's for the taking under former Blackburn Rovers coach Steve Kean.

With Rodrigo Tosi (22 goals) and Roy O'Donovan (15) leading the way, DPMM have scored the most goals and conceded the least. Defeat Warriors last night in Brunei and they would have been six points clear of nearest challengers Tampines.

'The boys (have) looked fresh and sharp (in training over the last dew days). If not for the fantastic goalkeeping, it could have been double figures,' Kean said after the match as quoted on the SLeague site.

 Less than a week after the BBC reported in earnest that Blackburn Rovers' defender Bradley Orr was set to join TFC, it has become official. While it's not necessarily another #BloodyBigDeal it could plug up one of the few glaring holes left in The Reds' starting eleven.

While there are still depth questions at the centreback position, the rightback role was looking like it would have to fall to MLS novice Mark Bloom by default.
