Swannies in RMIT University’s Roving EyeT magazine
Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 16, 2010
Just when you thought it couldn’t get much bigger for the Vietnam Swans, an article has appeared in RMIT University’s magazine which is distributed to their IT (hence the “EyeT”) staff in Melbourne.
Swannie, David Hadley in the article writes that there have been “many highlights since the last Vietnam Swans update, with the team succeeding very well off the ground, even if there has not been much success on the field.”
The article goes on to mention highlights such as the Nathan Buckley / Garry O’Donnell visit, the medical kit for elephants at the Lao match, the Inaugural ANZAC Friendship Match and next month’s Asian Championships in Shanghai.

Hang on! Let’s rewind for a moment. The article claims the Vietnam Swans have not enjoyed “much success on the field” this year. The Swannies Blog would respectfully suggest that this is a big call given we have won four of our five international matches this year (Jakarta, Lao and two against Cambodia. But we did have a drubbing against Hong Kong) which gives us an 80 per cent strike rate. Obviously for RMIT’s IT staff, anything less than 100 per cent is sub optimal and, quite frankly, unacceptable! High (and controversial) standards indeed.
While we’re talking about the Swannies on field performance, let’s start talking about next month’s Asian Champs in Shanghai and take a poll. Of the Swannies four preliminary matches, how many will we win? Vote now!
The Vietnam Swans are attracting an increasing amount of attention from the media – both in Vietnam and back in Australia. To see other articles about the Swannies, click onto the Press tab.
