GRIFFITH NOTES: The Aussie Ruler July 5, 1964 - No. 11

By Neil Griggs: It was "black" Sunday for the Red and Whites at Narrandera last week, with two defeats and two descents down the comp ladders.

Narrandera were just too good, and we haven't the excuse of a bad umpire - pity they are not all like Gambetta, who would be a good man for the championship final.

Len Sexton was, again, our best player, even though he had to get most of his kicks the hard way.

With Jim Eley absent and Bob Little injured early in the third term, Bill Biron, with a sustained and game effort, came right back to form, and it should help him retain his place in the rep team.

Mal Brauman failed to get a goal - he had plenty of chances, too, but kicked and marked badly, but there will be other days.

Our seconds gave us a bad start when they went down by 64 points. Best of the disappointing team were Tony Collins, Bob Carroll and Kevin Phillis.

Seems a good idea club gatekeepers operating for championship final. Wide publicity will be needed, however, to get all pedestrians through the turnstiles.

Good luck to our team next Saturday - don't forget those cheer squads.    Notes No. 12 >>>
