Miss Australia makes the Daily Telegraph

Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 23, 2008

Clearly, someone told the Tele. That’s right, Miss Australia has appeared on the website of Sydney’s Daily Telegraph wearing the Vietnam Swans’ jumper. We’re not sure if the Lovely Laura also made the printed copy of the Telegraph.

Meanwhile, back to the real story. Miss Vietnam has been getting some very positive coverage in the Vietnam media. According to some close to the inner circle, Miss Australia is a genuine contender for the Miss Universe gong.

Un-Australian to Miss Australia

Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 23, 2008

Whats worse, putting your tips in and getting less than the automatic score for the away teams (Gus, Phil, 45% of the swans tipstars), or not making an appearance at the Miss Australia training session Saturday morning? (Drew and Sam). Surely it is un-Australian to Miss Australia. Anyway enough of that life changing experience and back to the Tips - Sorry for the disappearance for a few weeks, but here we go.


Round 10 - 3 votes, “The Bloke” - smashed everyone with the only 8.

Round 11 - 3 Votes, “The Bloke” - was 1 of 3 to get the 8 - but also selecting the correct score, you can’t get any better than that.  Phil and Matty (Bobby Brewers) Johns the other 2 to nab 8.

Round 12 - 3 Votes, “Bobby Brewers Johns - obviously with the opening of the new store on his mind and looking for any free publicity he can get, he dominated this round with 7 and the closest margin of 3. Micky F came in a close 2nd

Round 13 - Considering he wrote a list after this weekend, to come out as the number 1 tipstar is devine intervention. The No 1 Drew snuck in with a lazy 6. M Johns, Damo, The Stray and Lockett 1300 all posted 6’s as well.

So the Leaderboard - 1) The Bloke 83, 2) Deesboy 81, 3) Troggs 81. There are still plenty in the hunt - remember there are millions riding on this competition. Also note the last 3 round are silent - so unless you are Gus or Matty Johns and tell everyone they see who they picked and a game by game summary all across the weekend - it should be exciting. 

Hang in there and keep tipping - TIPSTAR

Miss Australia and the Miss Universe Pageant

Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 23, 2008

Laura Dundovic, is Australia’s nomination for the Miss Universe Pageant. The final contest will be held on 14 July at the Diamond Bay Resort, Khanh Hoa Province, in Nha Trang.

NBC will televise the event live back to 13 million viewers in the US and therefore it will start at 9am (hope the contestants have remembered to get rid of their “morning breath”). The organisers claim that globally, there will be 1 billion viewers from 170 countries.

The contest is an opportunity for “beautiful young ladies from more than 80 countries not only to share their culture but also their values, intelligence, talent and beauty” according to the .

According to the Vietnamese Swans, Laura was absolutely stunning. She has a list of talents, skills and ability as long as her legs - apart from the fact that soccer is her preferred sport!

Laura says that she is planning to complete her honours degree and become an Organisational Psychologist and, ultimately, would like to own her own consulting business.

From all of the Swans, thank you very much Laura and the very best of luck in the Big One on 14 July. You would be an extremely worthy winner.
