How it works
Some Vietnam Guernsey Background
After going National in 2007 the Swans current strip was introduced in 2008 (has had some fine tweaks since) by none other than Miss Australia under the watchful eyes of Gus McEwan and Phil ‘Fabbo’ Johns among others.
Why the Swans? Andy Wall provided the then Hanoi Hawks a full set of Sydney Swans jumpers in 2001 and the Hanoi Hawks became the Swans.
It’s worth noting that the Saigon Saints had been active prior to this down South in traditional Red, White and Black St Kilda style jumpers. Even touring Thailand with some Hawks as the Vietnam Saints in 1999. Read more about the early days here.
The Swans have played out of the traditional strip notably once in the 2016 ANZAC Day Friendship Match vs the Jakarta Bintangs. The Red and White Sydney Swans-esque top was a hit but it clashed with the all red Bintangs once off guernsey so much so that the Bintangs played the Second half with their tops inside out!
