Nha Trang trip – 2 weeks to go

Posted by Vietnam Swans on April 4, 2008

It’s just two weeks before the big footy trip to Nha Trang happens.

The Hanoi Dragons were unable to field a team at all and so now the rugby will be played off between Saigon and Nha Trang. Once that stuff is finished, then we’ll have the Annoyin’ Hanoians against the Saigon-“hangs down to his”-nese in the footy.

If you need transport up or down to Nha Trang, then you are politely requested to organize it your self. If you need accommodation in Nha Trang, then you might like to try:

Ha Van Hotel, 3/2 Tran Quang Khai, Nha Trang

Bob – of Café Latin fame – is the manager and an old friend of Saigon Rugby Club and you can contact him on 090 974 7854 or  

If you hold your breath and say very quietly that you are with the Saigon Rugby Club, he will drop the price from $15 to $12 per night. Is it worth $3 to drop your pride and say you’re with the rugby club? You decide.

The venue of the match on Saturday afternoon will cost the respective clubs a grand total of VND1.6million. That includes: 

  • 100 bottles of water
  • 100 cold towels
  • Free line marking.

To see just how good a deal that is, you had better book your flight and come on down/up. Just two weeks to go.

Vietnam Swans TIPSTARS – RD 2

Posted by Vietnam Swans on April 4, 2008

Muzza the Tip Star makes his long awaited return to commentary:

Short but sweet this week lads.

Highlight of the week – all 30 participants in the comp all on board and got their tips in.  Lowlight of the week, the early fall from grace of the Vietnam stalwart – the “Stray”. He slumped from a Top 5 in round 1 to bottom 2 in Round 2. Hell!.

Plenty of boring blokes in the comp. Matthew Ball, Kutch, Boz, Muzza, Drew, Mick the Dick F, Johnny Tatnell, Locket 1300 (most of them kicked in the bog at Morrabbin when where no one cared), Rory Sprekler (fake name) – all tipped the same number across both rounds and need to break out and grow some B#lls.

Bony M – also known as Tony M. Finally lived up to his rep. Nice one slotting in a lazy 7.

Can’t forget the awesome 4 some – blokes who jagged 8 last week included, Griggsy from somewhere in the middle of Nam, Troggs, Mr CBA and Hawks fan.

So onto RD 3. At the moment it looks as though the Hanoi TIPSTARS are far from it. How about you blokes lift your game and start getting ready for the “STATE OF ORIGIN” in Nha Trang later this month. Can’t promise a shoot out similar to Dunstall V Ablett V Lockett V Who cares, like in the mid 90′s – but get your act together and pull on the shorts. Huge bragging rights that will last for the entire year.
