Vietnam Swans Vs HMAS ANZAC

Posted by hanoiswans on August 25, 2008



“This is a momentous occasion for an Australian warship to be offered the chance to play AFL in Vietnam”, says Coach Brent Irving from the Australian naval frigate, HMAS ANZAC.




The ANZAC docked in Saigon this morning. Tomorrow, the Vietnam Swans will have a photo shoot and private tour aboard the ANZAC. The following day, Wednesday, Brent’s Boys from the ANZAC will dare to challenge the Vietnam Swans on our own turf at RMIT University, commencing at 4.30pm. 

Expect the ANZAC to come out with all guns blazing. Expect students and staff from RMIT and the Australian International School to come out in support of the home team, the Vietnam Swans. Expect the competition for the Sherrin footy – supplied by the Sydney Swans – to be red hot. 

Ensuring that everyone feels like a winner, Al Frescos will supply the food while Foster’s Lager, Jim Beam and Van Phat Wines will ensure everyone is hydrated… 

In one of his farewell appearances, the outgoing Australian Consul General, Mal Skelly will award the trophy to the winning team.

HMAS ANZAC will record the history of the day by permanently hanging a Vietnam Swans jumper in one of the ship’s dining rooms.

Expect this to be a cracking day. In the future, when people ask, “Where were you when the Vietnam Swans played the HMAS ANZAC?”, tell them you were there.

Hearin me?
