With two games left Sawyer’s club Tai Po are two points clear at the top of the Hong Kong Premier League 

Three points this Saturday in Guangzhou against second-placed title rivals R&F will confirm the title for his side

What’s more, the tall Brisbane-born centre forward is currently leading the votes in the Young Player of the Year award.

A double celebration for the one-time Jets striker is on the cards.

And it gets even better for Sawyer, in the AFC group stage. Tai Po is two from two and in the equal top spot in their group.

But how are some of Asia’s other Aussies doing?


(Selangor, Malaysian Super League)

Currently sitting in the second position on the Malaysian Super League ladder, Selangor is unbeaten in six games and surging back into contention. 

It was a rocky start to the season for this powerhouse club, with a long injury list to contend with. That included Regan picking up a stomach muscle injury against PJFC.

But things are starting to click nicely for the Aussie defender’s side.

The former Reds and Jets central defender tweeting on the weekend: 'Away game against Kedah is one of the toughest MSL fixtures. But last night we showed that Selangor is starting to believe again.'


(Cerezo Osaka, J-League)

Waring in camp with the Olyroos in March in KL

The former Melbourne Victory striker got injured shortly after returning from the Olyroos’ successful Olympics qualification campaign in March in southeast Asia. 

He got back to full training last week with the club's 23s. 

And in better news, the tall Aussie striker played his first game back on Sunday in a 0-0 draw with Kataller Toyama.

Waring was sent on as an 83rd-minute sub at the Nagai Stadium.

Cerezo Osaka U-23s are currently second in the J3 after seven games.


(Hong Kong Pegasus, Hong Kong Premier League)

Mariners fans may remember that name. Like Sawyer, he’s having a terrific season in Hong Kong, with 14 goals in all competitions, two behind leading scorer Lucas Espindola da Silva.


(Sukhothai FC, Thailand T1)

A regular in the starting XI with nine appearances, the former Reds striker is settling in well at his side after transferring to Thailand in January. Sukhothai sit mid-table in Thailand’s top league, T1.


Ex-Sydney FC defender's Thai transfer proves a winner

Patrick Flottmann left Sydney FC for more game time. He got that in Thailand. But he got a whole lot more.


Is this Asia's most in-form Australian right now?

The Blake Ricciuto show continues after another stellar display as the former NSW NPL star scored again for Singapore Premier League high-flyers Brunei DPMM.
