GRIFFITH NOTES: The Aussie Ruler May 6, 1962 - No 4.
By Neil Griggs: Football is a winter sport and we certainly had our first taste of bleak weather last Sunday. It didn't effect the players, however, and they turned in a thriller for the big crowd present.
Both coaches, Len Sexton and Martin Bourke, were grand leaders, but perhaps tried to do a little too much running instead of kicking the ball.
The tussle between the rovers was a feature of the game. John Wright took the individual honours, but overall, the Griffith pair did the better.
Col Holt maintained his improvement and, on the day, rated best ruckman afield. John Cramp proved his worth as a utility player by rating one of our best from centre, deputising for Norm Munro.
Les Collis was the winner of Ron Dalla's shirt award as our best player. He has been playing well, and this could be his best season if he maintains this form.
The seconds' game was really hard-fought, with Turvey Park getting up right on the bell. John Diggelmann, Ernie Wade and Malcolm Brauman were amongst the best.
