The summer issue of the ‘s quarterly magazine, Debrief, has just been published. It includes a page devoted to the Vietnam Swans.
Debrief reproduces a Swannies update that was distributed to the members and supporters list on 27 October 2010 – just after the 2010 Asian Championships in Shanghai. There was also a section on the 2011 ANZAC Friendship Match:
As you will be aware, the Vietnam Swans will host the Hong Kong Dragons in the 2011 ANZAC Friendship Match in Vung Tau. Prior to the Asian Champs, the Vietnam Swans and Hong Kong Dragons organised for both teams to meet on the ground after the tournament (Asian Champs in Shanghai) for a beer. Which we did.
Everywhere, ANZAC matches have special symbolism and significance. In Vietnam, they are are also intertwined with a raft of political sensitivities. Accordingly, both Club Presidents addressed the assembled teams to set the context and background for next year’s ANZAC Friendship Match in Vietnam.
