 GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 4, 1972 - No. 8 

By Swan: Three wins against the Bulldogs made it quite a day for the Swans especially as each win consolidated our position in the top four of the three competitions.

The main game was a real crowd "pleaser" with little between the teams and the lead changed several times before we eventually won the four points.

It was a game that was always hard and fast with no spite, in fact the kind of game that will attract more spectators - let there be more of them - football instead of foot-brawl.

Our trophy winners against Turvey Park were Firsts: Bruce Forbes; Seconds: Errol Hill and Thirds: Glen Luhrs - all certainly were worthy winners.

Once again Farrer proved their superiority at Yerong Creek in last Sunday's inter-league game, which gives them three wins from four games at the Creek.  Although the SWDFL played poorly, we had at least had the satisfaction of knowing our five players were well in the fore.

Congratulations are in order to Bruce Forbes for selection in the N.S.W. squad and to Neville Brand, who won the best SWDFL (Under 16's) player award.
