The wrote today that Miss Australia “sports AFL look but doesn’t score”. The paper was referring to the national dress competition which was held yesterday where she scored zippo.
But in fairness to Laura, what is our National dress? The Swans Blog thinks the Tele was wise to use a photo of her in the Swans new jumper instead of the national dress.
However, there was a slight hiccup when readers of the Telegraph mistakenly thought that Laura wore the AFL jumper as the Australian national dress! For example, here’s a sample of the readers’ comments:
- A Socceroos jumper would have been more recognisable (Eds note - than a Vietnam Swans jumper??)
- Culture… what culture?? When a club sports jersey is chosen to represent your countries (sic) national pride you’ve got serious problems! good choice Laura!
- Well,,,,the judges probably thought what the heck is she wearing…not many if any people outside of Australia even know what AFL is. She would have done better with the flag drapped (sic) over her.
The Vietnam Swans have now met Miss Australia and are absolute fans. She is, without a doubt, a stunner of a star. Laura is capable of a match winning performance kicking a goal from anywhere at anytime. The local media in Vietnam sings her praises and the whisper from “those in the know” is that she is highly regarded in the circles that matter.
The other Miss Universe contestants, like the Vietnam Swans, will want to keep an eye on Laura.

For the record, long time friend of the Swans, Kevin Dacey reports that the same photo appeared in Brisbane’s MX give-away paper yesterday.
