GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 2, 1968 - No. 8
By Swan: Containing their good form of their previous game Ganmain were too good last Sunday and we slid down two places on the ladder to sixth which calls for some stocktaking and a lot more life and purpose in our football if we have any ambitions at all this season.
Their win had a special significance for Ganmain as it was their first victory at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval in 8 visits.
Only in the last quarter did our players show sustained activity and while it was a hopeless chase a strong finish, at least gives some encouragement for the future.
Good 100 minute players in Red and White were hard to find but the judges for the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award sorted them out as follows:- Don Best 3 points, Kevin Kirkpatrick 2 points Darryl Collis 1 point.
Our Seconds also disappointed to lose by 47 points with our best David Hall, Ray Smith, Wal Clark.
The Thirds provided the one bright spot in the day by winning by one point on the bell after some atrocious kicking (2-11).
It's Narrandera today with the loser suffering three defeats in a row and it is a long time since that happened to Griffith or Narrandera.
