Cambodian match to be a three way round robin format

Posted by Vietnam Swans on July 18, 2012

Vietnam will play as the Saigon Swans and Hanoi Swans against Cambodia this weekend in a three way round robin format.

It all happens this Saturday, 21 April 2012 at RMIT, Saigon: three big teams; three big games; one big round robin tournament.

With such a strong presence from Hanoi, the Swans have decided to divide into two teams namely, the Hanoi Swans and the Saigon Swans for the clashes against Cambodia which will comprise 14 per side on the field. However, city of origin will not come into play. Nearly.

The Swans players, representing a National Club have all been tipped into one pool. From there, two even teams on paper have been selected with a couple of exceptions. The Hanoi President, Dan Hopkins and Saigon’s Acting Captain (in Dukesey’s absence), Dave O’Shea.shall head the Hanoi Swans.

The Saigon Swans shall be fronted by Saigon President, Sam Conroy and Hanoi Coach/Captain Ado Enright.

The matches to be played and game times are:

  • Game 1. 1:20 – 2:00pm. Hanoi Swans Vs Cambodian Eagles
  • Game 2. 2:10 – 2:50. Saigon Swans Vs Cambodian Eagles
  • Game 3.  3:00 – 3:40. Saigon Swans Vs Hanoi Swans
