GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 5, 1968 - No. 4
By Swan: In a complete reversal of form our team turned on some really good football to beat Leeton last Sunday.
You can't go on form can you; in three rounds Leeton beat GGM, GGM then beat Griffith and then Griffith beat Leeton.
One pleasing feature of our play was some effective handball which initiated many scoring moves.
By popular vote Kevin Kirkpatrick rated our best and took the 3 points in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award. Ron O'Neill got 2 points and Frank Conlan one.
John Canduso and Wayne Robins showed the worth of the Third 18 competition.
Both were Thirds last year but on Sunday with the Firsts, both played well and are potential footballers of the future.
It was "even stevens" in the early games - Leeton winning the Thirds and Griffith the Seconds.
Our best in these games were Trevor Reed, Graeme Rennie (Thirds) and Mick Newman and Wal Clark (Seconds).
Although young, our Thirds lack nothing in enthusiasm and 24 turned up and somehow were given a run this, the team's first game this year.
How do they pick them! Geelong's defeat of Richmond last week won Bob Spears a goodly supply of schooners.
