 SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 6, 1965 - No. 8 

Thanks, Ganmain, for your contribution to a really fine game, played in the spirit all football should be. The game certainly was a crowd-pleaser and impressed everyone, including quite a few Rugby fans.

"Mr. Consistent", Vic Hathaway, turned in a grand effort to take off Ron Dalla's Whitmont shirt award, as our best. His tussle with "Turkey" Tom Carroll was a highlight of the game.

Sid Robins maintained his good form and made Frank Hodgkin earn every kick, while young Bob Munnerley again went very well.

The Maroons were a little too good in both the early games. Captain John Kupsch won the trophy as best of the seconds, and Denny Dreyer, Harry Moses and Allan Anderson impressed.

The thirds had a keen tussle, Phillip Smith, Les Hodson and John Crump showed continued good play for our young team.

The first 18 had a convivial Tuesday evening, thanks to the donation of a "niner" by a pleased supporter after their win last Sunday.

We will be flat out to break our Gissing Oval hoodoo today, when we meet the Bulldogs in three games.
