Yesterday the Malaysian Warriors, with ex AFLer Trent Croad, scored a convincing victory over the Swannies in Kuala Lumpur.
It was a good strong first half with the scores even at the main break, but the Warriors kicked away in the second half to win the Linfox Cup 12. 7. 79 to the Swannies 3. 8. 26.
The Swannies were playing for our 8th consecutive victory but it was not to be.
The Warriors judged Nick Shiells as the Swannies best.
Congratulations to first time tourers for the Swannies: Aaron Daldy, Scotty Levin, Kyle Hackenberg, Trent Mears and Nibsy. Also congrats to C. Dan Hopkins on his first tour as Hanoi President.
Special thanks to Timmay Clements who took the lead role in organising the tour. Thanks also to Dezza as co organiser, coach, gun player etc and Matty Townsend as the irrepressible and reprehensible Fines Master.
A great weekend put on by our Malaysian hosts.
More to follow.
