Saturday in Saigon

Working between Miri, Manila and KL this week allowed me to sneak in a short stop over in Saigon to catch up with some old mates at the Vietnam Swans.
Training is on Saturdays at the RMIT campus sports grounds - as it has been for many years now.  Turn out was good and after a surprisingly intensive training run we played a 12 a side scratch match to tune the boys up for their tilt at the indo china cup in Laos next week.
Like all clubs in Asia, the swans go through their ups and downs but the last few years has seen a strong core group help carry the team to the top of the 2015 AFL Asia Ladder which included taking out the 2015 Manila Cup. Good luck in Luang Prabang and at the Asia Champs in Thailand in October gents.

I got a few laughs wearing my 2011 kit.. !
