Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 29, 2012
On the eve of the AFL’s Multicultural Round, the Southern Dragons, have confirmed that they would like to tour Vietnam again for their end of season trip in October.
The Dragons, a Melbourne based footy club comprising numerous players of Vietnamese origin, played against the Vietnam Swans in Saigon on 7 January this year.
We played for the Inaugural Vietnam Australia Friendship Match and the Dragons, despite the heat, were victorious. The final score was: Swans 5. 6. 36 def. by Southern Dragons 11. 14. 80
Attending that match was the newly appointed Australian Consul General, John McAnulty and Mick Martin from the Sydney Swans.
General Manager of the Southern Dragons, Tung Ly said that the players “really enjoyed the last trip (to Vietnam) and the camaraderie between the Southern Dragons and the Vietnam Swans”.
The Swannies President, Phil Johns said that it would be “absolutely sensational” to have the Dragons tour again. And, with the game scheduled for 27 October, it will be the ideal preparation for the Indochina Cup on 10 November 2012.
