Swannie to coach ANZAC Day Challenge tomorrow at AAMI Stadium

Posted by Vietnam Swans on April 28, 2012

Swannie, Rod Campbell, is to coach the Australian Combined Emergency Services team (pictured above) in tomorrow's 9th ANZAC Day Challenge which will be the curtain raiser to the AFL match between Adelaide and Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium.

Rod Campbell was travelling through Vietnam back in 2008 when he met up with the Swannies in both Hanoi and Saigon.

Tomorrow, Rod will be coaching ACES (the Australian Combined Emergency Services team) in the 9th ANZAC Day Challenge.  The ANZAC Day Challenge is played between ACES – which is made up of the best footballers from the fire, police and ambulance services in Australia – and the Australian Defence Force All Stars. The match will be played prior to the game between Adelaide and Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium.

Rod has extensive coaching experience in Australia working with coaching greats such as Denis Pagan. His father, Graham, was a former player and coach for Fitzroy. Rod gave those of us in Hanoi tips, insights and ideas into game strategies and training drills and then he did it all again for us the following week in Saigon.

Rod is also very good friends with Darren McRae who sings the incredibly moving song, .

And good luck to Rod and his team tomorrow from all the Swannies.
