Pt 2, Swans Footy Schedule: Elephants energise!

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 12, 2007

The Laos Elephants were threatening to tour Vietnam on the weekend of 24th November – just one week after Thailand’s tour.

But that fell over for two reasons: it’s unlikely that anyone from Saigon would make two flights to Hanoi in as many weeks. Secondly, the UNIS oval is unavailable that weekend.

So, now the prospect of a round-robin between Vietnam, Thailand and Laos on the 17th November has been raised. Marty Sharples from the Elephants describes it as a potential “veritable football feast”.

The proposal is now being discussed at the highest levels – but is not expected to have any influence on the timing of the next federal election in Australia.

Pt 1, Swans Footy Schedule: Sharks succumb

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 12, 2007

Saturday, 20 October, RMIT, Saigon: Vietnam Swans V Brunei Sharks – Game off.

Earlier in the week, the Swans received an email from the President of the Brunei Sharks, Justin Kennedy, requesting that their tour to Vietnam be postponed. The Sharks have a problem that the Swans are all too familiar with – that it’s difficult to travel.

Justin says that “we only had a small squad as it was. With some injuries (3), people heading home for birthdays (2) and some bad excuses (2) (including the guy to the side who was eaten by his mother)  we’ve been decimated down to a bare and weak dozen”.

No worries, Justin. Sharks often succumb to Swans…

The Brunei Sharks have an open invitation to tour to Vietnam whenever you can.
