The 2011 ANZAC Friendship Match is expected to be considerably bigger than this year’s match. The Hong Kong Dragons have already accepted an invitation from the Swans to play in next year’s match. Additionally, Dick “Johnno” Johnston shall also attend. Dick is particularly special as he was one of the guys who played football in Vung Tau during the War. Further, he played for 2AOD (2nd Advanced Ordnance Depot) which was the team that won the two 1968 premierships that were up for grabs. b-i-g.
