The Swannies win a tough game against Cambodia

The Swannies managed to pull off a tough victory against a determined Cambodian team.

The final score was Vietnam 7.9. 51 to the Cambodian Cobras 4.9. 33.

The Swannies voted Matt Townsend as the winner of the Rick Trewavas Medal.

Field umpire, Richard Beecher was presented with an award for outstanding umpiring services.

Miss Vietnam, Mai Phuong Thuy, at the coin toss

Miss Vietnam 2006, Mai Phuong Thuy, added some glamour at the start of the match by tossing the coin and having her photograph taken with both Clubs. A gesture that was extremely appreciated by all in attendance. (For the record, Damo, filling in for Skipper Dukes won the toss).

Tonight the respective teams will pick BOG’s for the other team at Cafe Latin.

The day was tinged with sadness as one of the Swannies, Matt Natalotto has just returned to Australia after hearing news about his mother. As a mark of respect, the Vietnam Swans proudly wore black armbands for Matt’s mum.
