GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 3, 1969 - No. 15
By Swan: Well, we have very little to skite about about this week as Ganmain took most of the honors last Sunday.
After winning the Thirds and leading 42-3 at half time in the Seconds, we were confidently anticipating another big day but our ego was somewhat deflated when Ganmain, with a very strong finish, got up to win the Seconds game and it was not long in the main game before our hopes were a dime a dozen.
There is a common saying of "You can't win them all" and it was brought home to us most forcible last Sunday when the Maroons gave the tame Swans a lesson in fast play-on football.
Our defenders had to do most of the work so naturally they included our best player, namely Frank Conlan, Bob Prenzel, Sid Robins, Phil Smith, with "Matey" Best lending timely assistance.
After apparently having their game "in the bag" at half time our Seconds were pretty dejected as they walked off after their 10 points loss but they can put it down to just one of those days.
There are a lot of teams below them on the ladder so they must be pretty good team, something they can prove today at Narrandera where we hope to get a few more points on the board again.
