GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 2, 1963 - No. 8

By Neil Griggs: A good hard fought, cleanly contested, high scoring game rewarded the good crowd that turned up last Sunday in threatening weather, fortunately it only threatened, to see us win both games.

Bob Spears and Ian Gillett had a very keen tussle with Bob's spirited effort in the second half giving him the edge on the day.

Another beauty was that in the centre between John Walsh and Dick Pieper and the decision was a draw.

Don Best received the shirt for the best first 18 player - a popular and merited decision. "Matey" has been in rare form since his switch to the wing.

Young Fred Stevenson made an auspicious return to the second 18, after injury last season, when he rated our best player against Coolamon. Len Sexton predicts a big future for this boy.

Don Pannan too returned to the second 18 after injury and with another game or two and further training should recover the form that made him a first grade player last season.

John Walsh was our best sprinter in the Police Boys' Club Bonfire carnival last Friday night. A couple of speedsters were overlooked but they will keep until next year.
