 SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 4, 1967 - No. 8 

Our supporters expected us to beat Ardlethan last Sunday, but no one was optimistic enough to suggest it would be 127 points.

Such was the case, however, and it was achieved by good, strong football against a team which never stopped trying.

John Scott, rover and forward, was our best although he only kicked 7 goals from 19 scoring shots.

John took the major three points in the Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award, with Angie Maloni, who controlled the centre all day, receiving two points and Brian Fitzpatrick, a strong defender, getting one.

Denny Dreyer and Les Collis turned in their best games of the year, whilst others doing well included John Higgins, Bob Spears and Mick Newman.

In their game our seconds set the tempo for the day with a 170-14 win to make our aggregate score for the day 324 points to 41. Bob Prenzel, who was the star of the third 18 last year, had his first game of the season with the seconds and rated our No. 1 player and he was well supported by Joe Whyte, Max Eldridge and Ray Smith.

We welcome Narrandera today and hope to reverse the result.
