GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 1, 1975 - No. 7
By Swan: Black Sunday - that's what last Sunday could well be called so far as the Griffith club is concerned. Narrandera took us apart in no uncertain manner in both First and Second Eighteen matches.
The Griffith Swans certainly played like very soft, docile Swans, indeed, and offered only a token resistance to the ferocious Narrandera Foxes.
If last week's effort is to be taken as a guide for the future performances this season, then those players who have been only interested in what they can get from the club, and I refer mainly to the locals, had best change their attitude and give something in return, else there may well be a rather violent revolution within our ranks.
Too many players are more concerned with what other people may or may not be doing, rather than minding their own business and giving of their best.
Congratulations to the Third 18 on a fine win - a pity the more senior players don't follow their example of dedication at training. Best players for the Thirds, Kelvin Turner, Drew Luhrs, Robert Owen, John O'Donnell and Robin Parisotto.
The Griffith Co-op Shirt award for the First 18 was won by Ralph Robins who battled all day under difficulty.
The Warburton Construction Cash award for Second 18 was won by Neville "Mops" Hall, the lone good player in the 2nd 18.
If there had been a 2nd and 3rd place, Mops would have won these as well.
The Club's 200 Club Jackpot competition was drawn last Friday and won by Col. Thomson and 2nd prize went to Oscar Chandler.
