GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 2, 1970 - No. 16
By Swan: Ardlethan offered some pretty rugged opposition last Sunday and our team, even though unsettled possibly by the absence of John Foley, Wayne Robins and David Hall, was not really impressive.
Still they say winning form is good form and our 23 points win, coupled with Turvey Park's 47 points loss, saw us join them in second place.
Bill Tyndall, who seems to get better with age, shared with Darryl Collis the vote as our best.
The Seconds game was a close, rugged struggle, which we managed to win with a couple of goals in the last few minutes.
Angie Maloni, challenging strongly for his old place in the Firsts, Ray Smith and Ian Wade rated our best.
With Garry Parslow, Peter Greedy (six goals) and Graham Malligan setting the pace, our Thirds played good football to score a surprisingly easy 99-15 win.
Congratulations to the John Foley and Malcolm Brauman on the recent arrivals of a daughter for the Foley's and twin daughters for the Brauman's. This trend, however, will have to stop if there is to be any future for Griffith in football.
