GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 5, 1962 - No. 16

By Neil Griggs: Our loss to Leeton last Sunday gave them a double this season, and now we'll have to "pull up our socks" if we hope to make the finals.

Bill Biron won another shirt to add to his collection with a sustained rucking effort. He was to the fore all day and gave a grand display.

John Cramp returned to the team after several weeks absence to be one of our best with some spirited play from the fullback position.

Jim Eley featured in a new role as a long range goal kicking forward, but it was on the ball in the last quarter that he played his best football and provided plenty of chances with his strong play.

It was good to see vice-captain Don Best back after injury, and with this game under his belt should be almost in top form for today's game.

The seconds, although defeated by the strong Leeton 18, turned in their best display in recent weeks. Denny Dreyer won the best and fairest shirt award with some lively roving and good positional play. Others to do well were Col Holt (he would have been handy in the firsts), Ken "Ripper" Stevenson and Allan Anderson.

Bob Carroll reports good bookings for our Ball on August 17, so don't leave your booking too late - numbers are limited, you know.
