The Australian Rules football team, Vietnam Swans, celebrated their first ever tournament victory on Saturday night after beating all comers at the Indochina Cup earlier that day.

The Swans  were joined at an over 200 strong party at La Cantine Restaurant in Dong Khoi St, District 1 by Aussie football players from fellow Indochina Cup teams, the Laos Elephants, Thailand Tigers and Cambodian Cobras, plus the Swan’s sister team, the Saigon Shooters, who also won a same-day netball IndochinaCup, and women’s netball teams from Hanoi and Thailand.

At the after-match function Vietnam Swan’s captain, Luke Creamer, said the Australian football Indochina Cup win was, “Epic.”

It was a very hard-fought-for win with several injuries early in the day including a broken jaw, a concussion and a badly split lip.

Before the game started Australian Consul General in HCMC, Graeme Swift, held a minute’s silence for the hundreds of Cambodians, who died in last week’s bridge tragedy in Phnom Penh.

    Dear Fabo

    Congratulations to all involved in what looked like ,in most part ,a wonderful event this past weekend. Good to hear that the Matt ( and others) are on the mend . Asian Footy is in good hands and the Swans are leading the way in the region in many areas , the Brand is in Good Hands. The last couple of days has shown or just reinforced the fact that our club is made up of a great group of people on and off the field , in Vietnam or just keeping in the loop from from other places. Go You Swans !.

    Will update you re the Veterans Activities / Contacts here in Melbourne as we build up to the 2011 Friendly in VT.

    I wish everyone involved the very best and look forward to seeing some Vietnam Swans in Melbourne in December.

    Best Regards

    Philip Murphy
