The Vientiane Victory


Last weekend in Vientiane, the Vietnam Swans had their first ever victory on foreign soil. In the Vientiane Victory, the Swans piled on 80 points to the Lao Elephants 55pts. Sammy Grigg snagged 7 sausage rolls in a match winning performance. Big Drew claims he helped Sam with at least 9 of his 7 goals! (Unheard of!) Regardless of whether that’s true, posters of Sam are appearing alongside mirrors at many of the barber shops that grace Vietnam’s footpaths.

The Asian Champs


One week out from the Beijing Olympics means we’re just 5 weeks out from the 9th Annual Asian Champs in Singapore on 6 September. Flights and accommodation are being booked and fundraisers are about to start. This week, the organizers of the Champs unveiled the official logo for the Champs (see above).


The Sydney Swans have offered us 2 Tommy Sherrin footies to help us with our assault. All we need to get our hands onto the footies is to find a carrier pigeon to bring them here from Melbourne. If you’re coming back from Melbourne, please contact us.


If you need to taste the footy on the park in Singapore, we’re not surprised. Contact us!! We are actively looking for more players and tourers. We need more!
