Amazing scenes last night could spell disaster for the Swans today in their keenly awaited match against the Hong Kong Dragons.
Swans Micky Johnston was scheduled to take a Vietnam Airlines flight last night at 9pm from Hanoi - with the Swans shorts. By 11pm, VNA were saying his delayed flight (and the flight before his) would leave at 2am!
At 11.30pm, Vietnam Airlines decided to just cancel the flights and try again this morning after a good night’s sleep. That wasn’t enough for Mick who had reached the end of his tether.
Mick’s given the shorts to Taber who is scheduled to fly to Saigon today – subject to the timely arrival of the aircraft.
Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Dragons were in fine form last night. The Jackal, enjoying his farewell tour, was punished by his team mates with a frightening selection of drinks.
As one Dragon said to the Swans Blog, “if the Jackal gets one kick today, the Swans will need to take a long, hard look at themselves”.
Hearin’ ya loud and clear.
