SWANS JUMPER SIGNED BY PAUL ROOS TO BE AUCTIONED

We have had some fantastic items donated for the silent auction which will be a part of the banquet on Saturday night. The best item is probably the opportunity to sit next to Premiership Coach, Paul Roos, during the exhibition match to be held in LA in January. After the Swans win in the Grand Final this is sure to be a hot item.
