 SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 2, 1967 - No. 11 

A walk off by Fred Mundy which was followed by a sensational last quarter by G.G.-Matong highlighted an incident packed game at Matong.

Set an inspired example by Merv Sellars, the Magpies showed they can play really good football and there were many relieved Griffith supporters when the siren ended that devastating last quarter burst.

The reliable Sid Robins just shaded Kevin Kirkpatrick as our best and gained 3 points in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier Suit award. Kevin Received two points and John Fitzpatrick one.

Ray Davies after only on second 18 game this year showed with a good effort what a handy player to the firsts he will be this year.

The seconds had a very big win and it was hard to sort out the best players perhaps John Mitchell, Phillip Smith (6 goals) and Reg Higgins were the most noticeable.

What a splendid game last Sunday's Country Championship was and what a grand performance the S.W.D.F.L. players turned in after conceding such a big start.
