Another night of entertainment for the Swans

Posted by Vietnam Swans on July 22, 2007

Last night a number of Swans in Hanoi went out to My Dinh National Stadium to see the Soceroos face off against Japan in the quarter final of the Asian Cup. 

The boys witnessed a scoreline of 1-1 after 90 minutes plus 30 minutes of extra goals. Gus McEwin is rumoured to have commented that the Bali Vs Hong Kong AFL Grand Final at the Champs last week was slightly more exciting.

Then came the mandatory “heartbreak penalty shootout” where both teams take it in turns to try and shoot fish in a barrel. Japan shot more fish and won.

Meanwhile, all this was being watched on the big screen at the Green Mango Restaurant which was celebrating its 3rd birthday on Cat Ba Island. Mr Hai the owner was doing a superb job. 

Mr Ashley Brooks, long time supporter of the Green Mango and the Swans was there in fine form. In the side photo, he’s seen being carried off the ground. The smart money says that with the way he was woofing down the drinks last night and the bevy of beauties circling, he may have been carried off again!

The Broadbeach Cats and Swans

Posted by Vietnam Swans on July 22, 2007

You may recall the recent story about the Broadbeach Cats giving the Vietnam Swans a plug on their website.

Well, the Swans Blog has just learnt that ex Hanoi Swan, Rick Trewavas “is happy to report that Skilts (Bobby Skilton) and Barry Round (former South Melbourne ruckman) were guests of honour at the Broadbeach Cat’s recent luncheon (Roundy’s son is the captain at Broadbeach) and it was my pleasure to pick the boys up at the airport and host them for lunch.

“I’m honking – Go Swannies!”

At this stage, it’s not clear whether discussion about the Vietnam Swans dominated proceedings at the Cat’s luncheon.
