GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 3, 1972 - No. 21
By Swan: Narrandera made quite a mess of our hopes of having a spell today but few will argue that they were not worthy winners last Sunday.
It's Coolamon today and following their powerhouse display against Turvey Park, the Hoppers will not be easy to beat but our coach and players are hopeful and optimistic that they will get another tilt at Narrandera in the final.
We will be without a couple of handy players today with ruck-rover Greg Thompson and winger David Simmons in Adelaide representing N.S.W. in an interstate High Schools carnival.
We will miss these two promising young players but fortunately have a couple of handy replacements available.
These two players plus Bruce Forbes (the idol of Narrandera) gives us three interstate representatives this season which must add another bright feature to the Swans plumage.
After today's game the Griffith players and supporters will combine in a social evening in the club-rooms at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval during which the best and fairest votes for our three teams will be counted.
